(2) Determination of the influence of the above param-
eters on the stability with:
(a) Variations in steam demand in a manner
corresponding to that expected in a power
plant, i.e., rates less than 2 to 3% per second.
(b) Turbine trip out with and without steam by-
(c) Variations in circulation velocity as might be
required to control the reactor under steam
demand fluctuations, i.e., 1 to 3% per second;
and as might occur if one or more circulating
pumps cuts in or out of the system.
(d) Variation of inlet subcooling in the range
which is significant to control, and to possible
feedwater flow incidents. Subcooling changes
must be made to encompass the range of
interest to both dual and indirect cycle modes
of boiling reactor operation.
(3) Determination of the response of the system when
operating under various integrated types of plant control. These systems -
will include those of the type designed for contemplated power plants, plus -
any other schemes, such as flow control, which may become evident through
results of the experiments in 1 and 2 above.
It is expected that all control systems can be de-
veloped with suitable response from the data obtained in experiments 1 and
The requirements of a clean system which are
associated with a research reactor dictate the use of Type 304, 316 or 347
stainless steel in all components of the primary system for Step III and in
most of the components for Steps I and II. However, the use of Type 405
stainless steel in the water coolers and steam condensers is permissible.
c. Construction in Steps
For Step I operation (direct cycle) the following equip-
ment will be installed:
(1) Pressure Vessel
(2) Main Building
(3) Auxiliary Building
(4) Control Building
(5) Retention and Discharge Storage Tank Building
(6) 1500-gpm Water Supply and Treatment System
(7) Forced-Circulation System Minus Water Coolers
