GCFR residual heat removal capability

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The residual heat removal (RHR) capability for providing lines of protection (LOPS) 1 and 2 of the gas-cooled fast breeder reactor (GCFR) demonstration plant is described. Included are design criteria and system descriptions for the RHR cooling systems and the portion of the plant protection system that is related to initiation of the RHR system operation. The design features of these systems provide inherently redundant and diverse means of core cooling for the GCFR. The hierarchy in the selection of the RHR systems and the application of the systems to key transient events are discussed. Methods of RHR system operation, ... continued below
