ROSA/LSTF experiment on a PWR station blackout transient with AM measures and RELAP5 post-test analysis

Takeda, Takeshi ; Otsu, Iwao ; Yonomoto, Taisuke 

An experiment on a PWR station blackout transient with the TMLB' scenario and accident management (AM) measures was conducted using the ROSA/LSTF at Japan Atomic Energy Agency under an assumption of non-condensable gas inflow to the primary system from accumulator tanks. The AM measures proposed in this study are steam generator (SG) secondary-side depressurization by fully opening safety valves in both SGs with the incipience of core uncovery and coolant injection into the secondary-side of both SGs at low pressures. The LSTF test revealed the primary pressure started to decrease when the SG primary-to-secondary heat removal resumed soon after the coolant injection into the SG secondary-side. The primary depressurization worsened due to the gas accumulation in the SG U-tubes after the completion of accumulator coolant injection. The RELAP5 code indicated remaining problems in the predictions of SG U-tube liquid level and primary mass flow rate after the gas ingress.
