Event sequence assessment of tornado and strong wind in sodium cooled fast reactor based on continuous Markov chain Monte Carlo method with plant dynamics analysis

Takata, Takashi  ; Azuma, Emiko*

A new approach has been developed to assess event sequences under external hazard considering a plant status quantitatively and stochastically so as to take various scenarios into account automatically by applying a Continuous Markov Chain Monte Carlo (CMMC) method coupled with a plant dynamics analysis. In the paper, a tornado and a strong wind are selected as the external hazard to assess the plant safety in a loop type sodium cooled fast reactor (SFR). As a result, it is demonstrated that the various scenarios where the order of the occurrence event and its occurrence time differs from each other can be assessed simultaneously as well as the statistical characteristics of plant parameter such as the coolant temperature. Furthermore, a weight factor is introduced so as to investigate the low failure probability events with a comparative small number of the sampling.
