JAEA Reports

An experiment denoted as SB-PV-09 was conducted on November 17, 2005 using the Large Scale Test Facility (LSTF) in the Rig of Safety Assessment-V (ROSA-V) Program. The ROSA/LSTF experiment SB-PV-09 simulated a 1.9% pressure vessel top small-break loss-of-coolant accident in a pressurized water reactor (PWR). The test assumptions included total failure of high pressure injection system and non-condensable gas (nitrogen gas) inflow to the primary system from accumulator (ACC) tanks of emergency core cooling system (ECCS). In the experiment, liquid level in the upper-head was found to control break flow rate. When maximum core exit temperature reached 623 K, steam generator (SG) secondary-side depressurization was initiated by fully opening the relief valves in both SGs as an accident management (AM) action. The AM action, however, was ineffective on the primary depressurization until the SG secondary-side pressure decreased to the primary pressure. Meanwhile, the core power was automatically reduced when maximum cladding surface temperature of simulated fuel rods exceeded the pre-determined value of 958 K to protect the LSTF core due to late and slow response of core exit temperature. After the automatic core power reduction, loop seal clearing (LSC) was induced in both loops by steam condensation on the ACC coolant injected into cold legs. The whole core was quenched because of core recovery after the LSC. After the ACC tanks started to discharge nitrogen gas, the pressure difference between the primary and SG secondary sides became larger. After the continuous core cooling was confirmed through the actuation of low pressure injection system of ECCS, the experiment was terminated. This report summarizes the test procedures, conditions, and major observations in the ROSA/LSTF experiment SB-PV-09.

Data report of ROSA/LSTF experiment SB-SG-10; Recovery actions from multiple steam generator tube rupture accident

Experiment SB-SG-10 was conducted on November 17, 1992 using LSTF. Experiment simulated recovery actions from multiple steam generator (SG) tube rupture accident in PWR. Primary pressure was kept higher than broken SG secondary-side pressure due to coolant injection from high pressure injection (HPI) system into cold and hot legs even after start of full opening of intact SG relief valve (RV). Full opening of power-operated relief valve (PORV) in pressurizer (PZR) resulted in pressure equalization between primary and broken SG systems as well as PZR liquid level recovery. Broken SG RV opened once after start of intact SG RV full opening. Core was filled with saturated or subcooled liquid through experiment. Significant natural circulation prevailed in intact loop after start of intact SG RV full opening. Significant thermal stratification appeared in hot legs especially during time period of HPI coolant injection into hot legs.

Data report of ROSA/LSTF experiment SB-PV-07; 1% Pressure vessel top break LOCA with accident management actions and gas inflow

Experiment SB-PV-07 was conducted on June 9, 2005 using LSTF. Experiment simulated 1% pressure vessel top small-break LOCA in PWR under total failure of HPI system and nitrogen gas inflow to primary system from ACC tanks. Liquid level in upper-head was found to control break flow rate. Coolant was started to manually inject from HPI system into cold legs as first accident management (AM) action when maximum core exit temperature reached 623 K. Fuel rod surface temperature largely increased because of late and slow response of core exit temperature. SG secondary-side depressurization was initiated by fully opening relief valves as second AM action when primary pressure decreased to 4 MPa. However, second AM action was not effective on primary depressurization until SG secondary-side pressure decreased to primary pressure. Pressure difference became larger between primary and SG secondary sides after ACC tanks started to discharge nitrogen gas.

Data report of ROSA/LSTF experiment SB-HL-12; 1% Hot leg break LOCA with SG depressurization and gas inflow

The SB-HL-12 test simulated PWR 1% hot leg SBLOCA under assumptions of total failure of HPI system and non-condensable gas (nitrogen gas) inflow. SG depressurization by fully opening relief valves in both SGs as AM action was initiated immediately after maximum fuel rod surface temperature reached 600 K. After AM action due to first core uncovery by core boil-off, the primary pressure decreased, causing core mixture level swell. The fuel rod surface temperature then increased up to 635 K. Second core uncovery by core boil-off took place before LSC induced by steam condensation on ACC coolant injected into cold legs. The core liquid level recovered rapidly after LSC. The fuel rod surface temperature then increased up to 696 K. The pressure difference became larger between the primary and SG secondary sides after nitrogen gas inflow. Third core uncovery by core boil-off occurred during reflux condensation. The maximum fuel rod surface temperature exceeded 908 K.

Experiment SB-CL-32 was conducted on May 28, 1996 using the LSTF. The experiment SB-CL-32 simulated 1% cold leg small-break LOCA in PWR under assumptions of total failure of HPI system and no inflow of non-condensable gas from ACC tanks. Secondary-side depressurization of both SGs as AM action to achieve the depressurization rate of 200 K/h in the primary system was initiated 10 min after break. Core uncovery started with liquid level drop in crossover leg downflow-side. The core liquid level recovered rapidly after first LSC. The surface temperature of simulated fuel rod then increased up to 669 K. Core uncovery took place before second LSC induced by steam condensation on ACC coolant. The core liquid level recovered rapidly after second LSC. The maximum fuel rod surface temperature was 772 K. The continuous core cooling was confirmed because of coolant injection by LPI system. This report summarizes the test procedures, conditions and major observation.
