PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Tests were carried out to determine if there was sufficient excess reactivity present in the core to override a pesk xenon transient and to obtain data for rod worth calculations. Upon completion of 1565.4 EFPH of plant operation of Core I, Seed 2, there was sufficient reactivity to override the peak xenon transient imposed by a rapid shutdown from an average reactor power level of 102.65%. The override occurred 8 hr and 46 min after shutdown with Group I control rods withdrawn to 69 in. and Group II control rods controlling, withdrawn to 44.75 in. Rod Group III and Group ... continued below
