PM-1 Nuclear Power Plant Program: Final Progress Report, September 1, 1962 Through Completion

Description: From abstract: The principal efforts during the final period were concerned with plant testing, modifications to the plant to enable it to produce full design load at high ambient temperatures, the compilation and evaluation of plant performance data, preparation of documents and transfer of the plant to the AEC and final resolution of all outstanding contract scope items.

PM-1 Nuclear Power Plant Program: Plant Performance Studies, Final Periodic Report, September 1, 1962 to December 31, 1962

Description: From abstract: Data obtained during the performance testing of the PM-1 plant was compiled and evaluated. It is concluded from the data that the plant performance in general meets or exceeds specifications. Transient and steady-state electrical fluctuations are well within specified limitations. Heat balance data for both the primary and secondary systems agree reasonably well with design predictions. Radiation levels are below those anticipated.

PM Research and Development Task 1.0 : Core 2 Final Design Report

Description: From summary: This report describes the final design of Core 2, which is being developed primarily as a replacement core for the PM-1 and PM-3A nuclear power plants. In addition, the thermal and hydraulic capabilities were investigated; these indicate applicability of the core to higher powered PM-type plants.

SNAP Programs Quarterly Progress Report, Task 8--Stontium-90 Fuled Thermoelectric Generator Development: Number 1, November 1, 1960-January 31, 1961

Description: From summary: The SNAP 7 program is being conducted for the purpose of developing four radioisotope-fueled thermo-electric power generation systems. An important phase of this program is the processing of Strontium-90 into heat sources for these systems. The current effort involves the design and engineering analysis of two of the four thermo-electric generators.

SNAP Programs Quarterly Progress Report, Task 8--Stontium-90 Fuled Thermoelectric Generator Development: Number 7, May 1, 1962-July 31, 1962

Description: From introduction and summary: The effort in this area (Task 8 portion of contract) has been confined to operating the reliability model. There have been fluctuations in output power that can be attributed to variations in the operating parameters, plus an increase in the internal resistance.
