A SIMULATION OF THE EGCR STEAM GENERATOR

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

An analog model of the EGCR steam generator was developed and operated on the ORNL analog computer as part of a program to simulate the operation and control of the EGCR reactor plant. Equilibrium operation and the transient response of the steam generator unit to system perturbations were studied. A simultaneous solution of the basic heat transfer equations representing the performance of the unit was obtained. The model was operated initially at steady- state conditions, and then perturbations were made to gas flow, gas inlet temperature, and steam throttle valve position. The response characteristics of the model during the transients ... continued below

Description

An analog model of the EGCR steam generator was developed and operated on the ORNL analog computer as part of a program to simulate the operation and control of the EGCR reactor plant. Equilibrium operation and the transient response of the steam generator unit to system perturbations were studied. A simultaneous solution of the basic heat transfer equations representing the performance of the unit was obtained. The model was operated initially at steady- state conditions, and then perturbations were made to gas flow, gas inlet temperature, and steam throttle valve position. The response characteristics of the model during the transients were recorded. The steam generator gas outlet temperature showed a marked degree of insensitivity to changes in gas inlet temperature. The effect of gas flow changes on gas exit temperature was slightly more pronounced. The transient behavio-r of the unit was reasonable, and the model developed indicated satisfactory operation within the design range of 20 to l00% of full power. (auth)
