Description

This report contains a description of the reactor plant portion of the Enrico Fermi Atomic Power Plant, with emphasis on the reactor system. Since this plant contains a developmental reactor, emphasis has been placed on reactor safety and on achieving reliable operation. The design is conservative and is flexible enough to permit incorporation of the results of developmental programs, which include nonnuclear, full-scale component test facility operations, and nuclear experiments, such as critical experiments.
