3. DESCRIPTION OF TEST FACILITY

The Semiscale Mod-3B system is scaled to a reference four-loop PWR. The scaling criterion is a modified volume scaling based on the ratio of Semiscale power to the thermal power of the reference plant (Trojan). This scaling produces a scale factor of 1/1705.5. The system consists of a pressure vessel with an electrically-heated, 25-rod PWR core simulator and internals, an external pipe downcomer, and two primary coolant loops. Each loop has an active tube and shell steam generator. The intact loop is scaled to represent three of the four primary loops in a PWR, while the broken loop represents the fourth. Even though S-PL-3 does not incorporate a break, this loop is referred to as the "broken loop". In order to correctly scale the facility and preserve important phenomena, component elevations, dynamic pressure heads, and liquid distributions are maintained as close to the reference PWR values as possible.

4. DESCRIPTION OF TEST

The S-PL-3 experiment simulates a loss of offsite power with accompanying failure of the auxiliary feedwater and emergency AC power systems. When primary system pressure reached the safety-relief-valve setpoint, emergency power was assumed to be restored and recovery was initiated by latching open the power-operated relief valve (PORV) and initiating emergency core coolant (ECC) flow to begin the primary feed and bleed recovery.
