Performance characterization of isolation condenser of SBWR

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A systematic study of the performance of the Isolation Condenser (IC) for a conceptual design of SBWR is presented. The objective of the IC is to passively remove heat and control the pressure variation in the Reactor Pressure Vessel (RPV). According to the observed trends, the IC cooling capacity and condensate flow can independently influence the ultimate performance of the IC. The transient pressure profile for the IC reaches different equilibrium values for each of the cases analyzed. The absolute magnitude of these values are a function of the cooling capacity and flow rates. With appropriate control of the liquid ... continued below

Description

A systematic study of the performance of the Isolation Condenser (IC) for a conceptual design of SBWR is presented. The objective of the IC is to passively remove heat and control the pressure variation in the Reactor Pressure Vessel (RPV). According to the observed trends, the IC cooling capacity and condensate flow can independently influence the ultimate performance of the IC. The transient pressure profile for the IC reaches different equilibrium values for each of the cases analyzed. The absolute magnitude of these values are a function of the cooling capacity and flow rates. With appropriate control of the liquid flow loss coefficients, the performance of the IC can be well predicted. Due to the lack of useful data, this study is limited to the numerical simulation of the IC.
