HTTRを使った炉心冷却喪失試験では、原子炉の固有の安全性を確認するとともに、自然現象によりより安全を確保できることを示すため、炉心に制御棒を挿入せず、また、VCSを停止させて原子炉の強制冷却を停止させる。試験では、VCSの熱反射板のついていない水冷管に、原子炉の安全上問題とはならないが、財産保護の観点から局所的な温度上昇が懸念された。非核加熱試験を通して、局所的な温度上昇点が確認され、最高使用温度よりは低いが運転上の管理制限値を超える可能性のあることが分かった。冷却水の自然循環による冷却効果は1$$^{circ}$$C以内であった。このため、再稼働後早期に試験を実施するための安全確実な試験方法を確立した。

In the loss of forced core cooling test using High Temperature engineering Test Reactor (HTTR), the forced cooling of reactor core is stopped without inserting control rods into the core and cooling by Vessel Cooling System (VCS) to demonstrate the inherent safety of HTGR be secured by natural phenomena to make it possible to design a severe accident free reactor. In the test, the local temperature was supposed to exceed the limit from the viewpoint of long-term use at the uncovered water cooling tube by thermal reflectors in the VCS, although the safety of reactor is kept. The local higher temperature position was specified although the temperature was sufficiently lower than the maximum allowable working temperature, and natural circulation of water had insufficient cooling effect on the temperature of water cooling tube below 1$$^{circ}$$C. Then, a new safe and secured procedure for the loss of forced core cooling test was established, which will be carried out soon after the restart of HTTR.
