Identification of neutron noise sources in a boiling water reactor

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Measurements were made at Units 2 and 3 of the TVA Browns Ferry nuclear power plant in order to characterize the neutron and process signal noise signatures, to determine the degree of correlation between selected pairs of signals, and to assess the usefulness of such signatures for monitoring and anomaly detection in BWR-4s. Measurements were made in a power plant during normal operation at full power to determine the usefulness of the neutron and process signals from sensors and instrumentation in the plant which have been contaminated by plant electrical noise interference. It is concluded that the signals derived from ... continued below

Description

Measurements were made at Units 2 and 3 of the TVA Browns Ferry nuclear power plant in order to characterize the neutron and process signal noise signatures, to determine the degree of correlation between selected pairs of signals, and to assess the usefulness of such signatures for monitoring and anomaly detection in BWR-4s. Measurements were made in a power plant during normal operation at full power to determine the usefulness of the neutron and process signals from sensors and instrumentation in the plant which have been contaminated by plant electrical noise interference. It is concluded that the signals derived from existing plant sensors and instrumentation could be used to diagnose anomalies. The neutron signals could be used to monitor the stability of the core and to diagnose anomalies involving the reactor pressure, core flow, and steam flow.
