3. DESCRIPTION OF TEST FACILITY

The FIST facility is scaled to a BWR/6-218 standard plant. A full size bundle with electrically heated rods is used to simulate the reactor core. A scaling ratio of 1/624 is applied in the design of the system components. Key features of the FIST facility include:
(1) Full height test vessel and internals;
(2) correctly scaled fluid volume distribution;
(3) simulation of ECCS, S/RV, and ADS;
(4) level trip capability;
(5) heated feedwater supply system, which provides the capability for steady state operation.

4. DESCRIPTION OF TEST

This small break test simulates a BWR/6 recirculation suction line break of 0.05 sq.ft. with HPCS assumed to be unavailable. Test conditions were: initial bundle power: 5.05 MW; core flow: 42 lb/sec; ADS time delay : 120 seconds; ECC water  temperature: 90 deg.F.
