3. DESCRIPTION OF TEST FACILITY

In the FIX-II pump trip experiments, mass flow and power transients were simulated subsequent to a total loss of power to the recirculation pumps in an internal pump boiling water reactor. The aim was to determine the initial power limit to give dryout in the fuel bundle for the specified transient. In addition, the peak cladding temperature was measured and the rewetting was studied.

4. DESCRIPTION OF TEST

Pump trip experiment 2032 was a part of test group 2, i.e. the mass flow transient was to simulate the pump coast down with a pump inertia of 11.3 kg-m**2.  The initial power in the 36-rod bundle was 4.44 MW which gave dryout after 1.4 s from the start of the flow transient.  A maximum rod cladding temperature of 457 degrees C was measured. Rewetting was obtained after 7.6 s.
