PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The objective of this task was to assess the need for core non-nuclear instrumentation. The focus of this study was the evaluation of core investment risk events. Three categories of events were considered: (1) unanticipated primary loop flow leakages and core bypass flows, (2) core coolant channel flow blockages and (3) off-design core power distributions. The measurements that were considered include column average coolant exit temperatures, core average coolant exit temperature, core pressure drop and core flow rate. The findings are summarized. 3 refs., 7 figs.
