Analytical results of coolant flow reduction test in the HTTR

Takamatsu, Kuniyoshi; Nakagawa, Shigeaki; Iyoku, Tatsuo

Proceedings of 11th International Topical Meeting on Nuclear Reactor Thermal Hydraulics (NURETH-11) (CD-ROM), 12 Pages, 2005/10

Safety demonstration tests using the HTTR are in progress to verify the inherent safety features, to improve the safety design and the technologies for High Temperature Gas-cooled Reactors (HTGRs). The coolant flow reduction test by tripping one or two out of three gas circulators is one of the safety demonstration tests. The reactor power safely becomes a stable level without a reactor scram and the temperature transient of the reactor-core is very slow. The SIRIUS code was developed to analyze reactor transient during the tests with reactor dynamics. This paper describes the validation of the SIRIUS code with the measured values of one and two gas circulators tripping test at 30% (9 MW). It was confirmed that the SIRIUS code was able to analyze the reactor transient within 10% during the tests. The result of this study and the way of resolving problems can be applied to development for not only the commercial HTGRs but also the Very High Temperature Reactor (VHTR) as one of the Generation IV reactors.

In High Temperature Engineering Test Reactor (HTTR) of 30 MW, the generated heat at reactor core is finally dissipated at the air-cooler by way of the heat exchangers of the primary pressurized water cooler and the intermediate heat exchanger. Heat exchangers in main cooling system of HTTR should satisfy two conditions, achievement of reactor coolant outlet temperature 850 $$^{circ}$$C/950 $$^{circ}$$C and removal of reactor generated heat 30 MW. That is, heat exchange performance should be ensured as that in heat exchanger designing. In this report, heat exchange performance for Intermediate heat exchanger (IHX) in main cooling system is evaluated with rise-to-power-up test and in-service operation data. Moreover, the applicability of IHX thermal-hydraulic design method is discussed with comparison of evaluated data with designed value.

A High Temperature Gas-cooled Reactor (HTGR) is particularly attractive due to its capability of producing high-temperature helium gas and to its inherent safety characteristics. The High Temperature Engineering Test Reactor (HTTR), which is the first HTGR in Japan, achieved its rated thermal power of 30MW and reactor-outlet coolant temperature of 950$$^{circ}$$C on 19 April 2004. During the high-temperature test operation which is the final phase of the rise-to-power tests, reactor characteristics and reactor performance were confirmed, and reactor operations were monitored to demonstrate the safety and stability of operation. The reactor-outlet coolant temperature of 950$$^{circ}$$C makes it possible to extend high-temperature gas-cooled reactor use beyond the field of electric power. Also, highly effective power generation with a high-temperature gas turbine becomes possible, as does hydrogen production from water. The achievement of 950$$^{circ}$$C will be a major contribution to the actualization of producing hydrogen from water using the high-temperature gas-cooled reactors. This report describes the results of the high-temperature test operation of the HTTR.

The High Temperature Gas-cooled Reactor (HTGR) is particularly attractive due to its capability of producing high temperature helium gas and due to its inherent safety characteristics. The High Temperature Engineering Test Reactor (HTTR), which is the first HTGR in Japan, was successfully constructed at the Oarai Research Establishment of the Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute. The HTTR achieved full power of 30MW at a reactor outlet coolant temperature of about 850$$^{circ}$$C on December 7, 2001 during the "rise-to-power tests". Two kinds of tests were carried out during the "rise-to-power tests". One is commissioning test to get operation permit by the government and another is test to confirm a performance of the reactor, heat exchanger, control system. From the test results of the "rise-to-power tests" up to 30MW, the functionality of the reactor and the cooling system were confirmed, and it was also confirmed that an operation of reactor facility can be performed safely.

Prior to construction of a HTTR hydrogen production system, a mock-up test facility was constructed to investigate transient behavior of the hydrogen production system and to establish system controllability. The Mock-up test facility with a full-scale reaction tube is an approximately 1/30 scale model of the HTTR hydrogen production system and an electric heater is used as a heat source instead of a reactor. Before the mock-up test, a performance test of the test facility was carried out in the same pressure and temperature conditions as those of the HTTR hydrogen production system to investigate its performance such as hydrogen production ability, controllability and so on. It was confirmed that hydrogen was stably produced with a hot helium gas about 120Nm$$^{3}$$/h which satisfy the design value and thermal disturbance of helium gas during the start-up could be mitigated within the design value by using a steam generator.

At the JAERI Tandem accelerator, an acceleration tube replacing plan is proceeding to increase the acceleration voltage toward 20 MV. Lengthy conditioning is generally necessary for a large tube system. We had an idea to clean the tubes with high-pressure water-jet rinsing before installation. We cleaned tubes and tested them at 1 MV and 3 MV. The both results exhibited that the voltages went beyond the rated voltages and discharge activities were much less than the old records. During the test of new tubes at 3 MV, the conditioning proceeded well and an extremely stable condition was fulfilled within 24 hours. In conclusion, the cleaning was found to be a very promising way to improve high-voltage performance of the tubes in a large tube system.

HTTR plans a high temperature test operation as the fifth step of the rise-to-power tests to achieve a reactor outlet coolant temperature of 950 degrees centigrade in the 2003 fiscal year. Since HTTR is the first HTGR in Japan which uses coated particle fuel as its fuel and helium gas as its coolant, it is necessary that the plan of the high temperature test operation is based on the previous rise-to-power tests with a thermal power of 30 MW and a reactor outlet coolant temperature at 850 degrees centigrade. During the high temperature test operation, reactor characteristics, reactor performances and reactor operations are confirmed for the safety and stability of operations. This report describes the evaluation result of the safety confirmations of the fuel, the control rods and the intermediate heat exchanger for the high temperature test operation. Also, problems which were identified during the previous operations are shown with their solution methods. Additionally, there is a discussion on the contents of the high temperature test operation. As a result of this study, it is shown that the HTTR can safely achieve a thermal power of 30MW with the reactor outlet coolant temperature at 950 degrees centigrade.
