Development of a sensor for in-situ measurement of hydrogen peroxide in irradiation field by using frequency dependent complex impedance analysis

Hanawa, Satoshi ; Hata, Kuniki ; Uchida, Shunsuke; Nishiyama, Yutaka 

Water in the primary circuit of Nuclear Power Plants (NPPs) decomposes by radiolysis, then oxidants such as hydrogen peroxide and oxygen are generated as a result. Hydrogen peroxide is one of the major factor for initiation and propagation of stress corrosion cracking (SCC) in structural materials, hence in-situ monitoring of hydrogen peroxide at the point of interest in irradiation field is quite important to assure the integrity of NPPs. Concentration of hydrogen peroxide in irradiation field is governed by energy deposition by neutron and $$gamma$$-ray in which the degree of energy is different in locations, while concentration in un-irradiation area decreases due to thermal decomposition. Quantitative evaluation of hydrogen peroxide is, however, available only by analyzing sampled water at present, and therefore in-situ monitoring of hydrogen peroxide at the point of interest becomes quite important. Frequency dependent complex impedance (FDCI) analysis gives characteristics of oxide film on the materials, and it becames clear by recent activities that the low frequency semicircles in Cole-Cole plots shows linear correlation to the concentration of hydrogen peroxide. JAEA is now developing a sensor for in-situ monitoring of hydrogen peroxide applicable to irradiation environment by applying FDCI. The outline and overall schedule of the sensor development will be reported in the presentation.
