Army Gas-Cooled Reactor Systems Program. Initial Full Power and Limited Endurance Tests of the ML-1 Nuclear Power Plant. Final Test Report

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The evaluation of the data generated during the full power and limited endurance tests of the ML-1 mobile nuclear power plant indicates that the reactor performs in accordance with the design specifications. During the 101 hr test period, the reactor attained a maximum power of 3.44 Mw( and 247 kw(e) was measured at the output shaft of the turbine-compressor set. No operating limits were exceeded during these tests and all systems performed satisfactorily Except for the known performance deficiency of the turbinecompressor set, which prevented the attainment of design output power, no operational, stability, or control problems were encountered.
