internal wiring and dust sealing in the manufacturer's shop, and arrange-
ments should be provided for interconnection to other panels and to re-
actor and system components without disturbing dust seals (via the
electrical equipment room in the Control Building basement) by means of
floor open raceways just behind the panels.
The control console will be located approximately in the
center of the control room. The exact size of console is subject to the
control and indicating equipment selected. The console will be arranged
so that a seated operator can reach all console controls and observe all
indicators located on the wall panels ahead of and to the side of the console.
The console will contain the suitable controls to actuate
and manually override any automatic systems associated with:
(1) Control Rods
(2) Steam Stop Valves, if installed
(3) Turbine-Simulator Steam Throttle Valves
(4) Steam By-pass Valves
(5) Reactor Feed-water Flow-Control Valve
(6) Water Cooler and Forced-Circulation By-pass Flow
(7) Emergency Shut-down System, Control Rod Scrams, etc.
The following indicators will be located at the control console:
(1) Control Rod Position Indicators
(2) Galvanometer Scale indicating Ion Chamber Current
Proportional to Reactor Power
(3) Reactor Period Meter
(4) One miniature, continuously indicating linear scale
strip chart millivolt recorder connected to ionization
(5) Reactor Pressure Indicator
(6) Flow Indicators for the following:
Turbine simulator steam flow
Total steam flow
Reactor feed-water flow
Total forced-circulation water flow
Forced-circulation by-pass flow
(7) Pilot lights indicating pumps operating, power on, etc.,
as specified later.
Parameter Control Jack Board
Since a great deal of cooperative study will be necessary to
achieve the final design of the parameter control jack board, only the most
general requirements may be specified here, and itmust be emphasized that
even these are subject to change.
Here’s what’s next.
