3. DESCRIPTION OF TEST FACILITY

The Semiscale Mod-2A system for this test consists of a pressure vessel with simulated reactor internals, including a 256-rod core with electrically powered rods and an external downcomer assembly; an intact loop with pressurizer, steam generator, and pump; and a broken loop with a steam generator, pump, and rupture assembly. The system also has emergency core coolant (ECC) from high- and low-pressure injection pumps for each loop; a coolant injection accumulator for the intact loop and a pressure suppression system with header, suppression tank, and steam supply system.

4. DESCRIPTION OF TEST

This test simulates a loss-of-coolant accident resulting from a 10% communicative break in the cold leg of a pressurized water reactor. The break size for this test was 0.228 sq.cm. which is volumetrically scaled to represent a 10% pipe break in a PWR. The Mod-2A system was configured to simulate a PWR with the capability to inject emergency core coolant (ECC) into the vessel upper head. However, for this test, no upper head ECC injection was used. The intact loop accumulator pressure was set at 2.76 MPa as is specified for upper head injection (UHI) plants.
