XENON TRANSIENT TESTS. CORE I, SEED 2, 149.8 EFPH. Section 1. Test Results T-612081

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A test was made to determine if there is sufficient excess reactivity in the core to override a peak xenon transient and to obtain dath for rod-worth calculations. After 149.8 EFPH's of plant operation on seed 2, there was sufficient excess reactivity to override peak xenon. Criticality during peak xenon was maintained with group III and group IV rods inserted, group I rods withdrawn to approximately -69 in., and group II rods withdrawn to approximately - 29 in. The override of peak xenon occurred 8 hr and 45 min after shutdown. (W.L.H.)
