液体金属冷却炉において、炉心冷却材喪失事故等の初期検知及び炉内熱流動の把握のために、燃料集合体出口の温度及び流量計測が有用である。原子力機構は、開発した渦電流式流速計34体をもんじゅ炉心上部機構に設置した。本資料は、もんじゅに設置した渦電流式流速計のデータを示す。実測した結果、1次系流量と渦電流式流速計の信号強度は高い直線性を有していることが明らかになった。定格条件における変動量は0.2m/sであり、これはフルスケールの5%以下である。試験結果より、渦電流式流速計は相対流量を検知するのに有用な装置であることが示された。

Measurement of the temperature and flow rate at each fuel subassembly outlet is an effective way for a liquid metal fast breeder reactor to detect a loss of coolant accident or reactivity-initiated accident in the early stage and to understand the reactor's thermal hydrodynamic performance. Japan Atomic Energy Agency has developed the eddy current flowmeter in practical use and installed 34 of them in the upper core structure of fast breeder reactor, Monju. This report presents data obtained by using the flowmeters in Monju. We observed high linearity between each of the flowmeter's signal intensity and the primary sodium's flow rate under 10-100% flow rate condition. The fluctuation of flow rate observed by the flowmeters was below 0.2 m/s which is 5% of the time-averaged velocity under a rated condition. These experimental results show that the eddy current flowmeter is an effective tool to detect the changes in relative flow rate.
