BOILING NUCLEAR SUPERHEATER (BONUS) POWER STATION. Final Summary Design Report

Description: The design and construction of the Boiling Nuclear Superheater (BONUS) Power Station at Punta Higuera on the seacoast at the westernmost tip of Puerto Rico are described. The reactor has an output of 17.5 Mw(e). This report will serve as a source of information for personnel engaged in management, evaluation, and training. (N.W.R.)

Photovoltaics for Buildings Cutting-Edge PV

Description: Photovoltaic (PV) technology development for building-integrated applications (commonly called PV for Buildings) is one of the fastest growing areas in the PV industry. Buildings represent a huge potential market for photovoltaics because they consume approximately two-thirds of the electricity consumed in the US. The PV and buildings industries are beginning to work together to address issues including building codes and standards, integration, after-market servicing, education, and building energy efficiency. One of the most notable programs to encourage development of new PV-for-buildings products is the PV:BONUS program, supported by the US Department of Energy. Demand for these products from building designers has escalated since the program was initiated in 1993. This paper presents a range of PV-for-buildings issues and products that are currently influencing today's PV and buildings markets.

BOILING NUCLEAR SUPERHEATER (BONUS) POWER STATION. Supplementary Study. Extrapolation to Large Central Station Integral Nuclear Superheat Plant

Description: An evaluation was made of the maximum size plant for which the BONUS reactor plant could serve as a realistic prototype and the design changes required to increase the size and characteristics for the present BONUS design such that it could serve as a realistic prototype for the largest feasible integral-superheat reactor power plant.

ANALYSIS OF THE INITIAL NUCLEAR SUPERHEAT CRITICAL EXPERIMENTS. SUPPLEMENTARY STUDY RELATED TO BONUS AND NUCLEAR SUPERHEAT PROGRAMS

Description: A critical experiment program is carried out in a configuration similar to the BONUS reactor. The results give information concerning: the effects of different boilersuperheater geometries; the reactivity changes associated with superheater voiding or flooding; power regulation between the boiler and superheater regions; epithermal transmission probabilities for B-stainless steel and Cd control rods; the power flattening characteristics; and void simulation properties. The calculational methods used in the study predict the measured reactivity and power distribution to within the limits of experimental accuracy. (T.F.H.)

CHLORIDE DEPOSITION FROM STEAM ONTO SUPERHEATER FUEL CLAD MATERIALS

Description: Experimemts using Cl/sup 36/ in a steam test loop were conducted to study the deposition behavior of chlorides on BONUS superheater fuel assembly materials. The moisture content of the steam was varied between 0 and 0.5 wt%, and superheat was added up to 15 deg F before the steam passed over the test cartridge heater. The effects of vaiiables on the chloride deposition on the heater were studied in detail. Chloride deposition from moist steam was found to result in heavy, adherent deposits which are conducive to severe chloride stress corrosion of austenitic steels, while removal of all moisture from the incoming steam reduces the chloride deposition and minimizes the chloride stress corrosion. The heater surface condition was found to be a very important variable; deposition is increased by surface defects and pits. Neither the temperature of steam or heater nor the amount of superheat had an appreciable effect on the deposition, when no moisture existed in the steam. However, low steam velocities and spacer protoberances increase the deposition. Different clad materials (Inconel and Type 304 and 347 stainless steel) with similar surface conditions did not affect the deposition, although subsequent corrosion effects do modify the deposition behavior. Recommendations are given for the control of chloride deposition in nuclear superheater reactor systems. (D.L.C.)

OUT Success Stories: Solar Roofing Shingles

Description: Thin-film photovoltaic (PV) cells are now doubling as rooftop shingles. PV shingles offer many advantages. The energy generated from a building's PV rooftop shingles can provide power both to the building and the utility's power grid.
