MSIV closure ATWS mitigation of SBWR with the standby liquid control system

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

An Anticipated Transient Without Scram (ATWS) initiated by inadvertent closure of the Main Stream Isolation Valve has been analyzed using the RAMONA-4B code of Brookhaven Laboratory (1994). The Simplified Boiling Water Reactor (SBWR) operating in natural circulation is designed with many passive safety features. This analysis demonstrates the effectiveness of the heat-removal system during an ATWS, followed by shut down of the reactor through injection of boron into the reactor core from the Standby Liquid Control System (SLCS).
