3. DESCRIPTION OF TEST FACILITY

The system consisted of a pressure vessel with simulated reactor internals, an intact loop with a steam generator, pump, and pressurizer, a blowdown loop with rupture assemblies, a simulated steam generator, and a simulated pump and a pressure suppression system with a suppression tank and header. The semiscale apparatus was designed to simulate a 100% double-ended offset shear of the cold leg of a pressurized water reactor to investigate the system response to a Loss of Coolant Accident (LOCA). The break areas in Test lOll were reduced by 20% so that the system behavior would be significantly different from the previous semiscale tests.

 

Facility:

 

  • 1 1/2 Loop Semiscale System consisted of a pressure vessel with internals, including 9 electrically heated fuel rod simulators;

  • 1 intact loop with steam generator, simulated pump and bypass line

  • 1 broken loop simulator

  • emergency core cooling injection system

4. DESCRIPTION OF TEST

Scaling Information:

 

  • volume to break area equal to volume to break area of a large PWR

  • other parameters not scaled, facility should only yield data for comparison to analyses

 

Parameters offered for Comparison:

 

  • 2 pressures ( upper plenum and upstream break nozzle) ; containment pressure

  • 4 differential pressures (hot leg-cold leg, across pump, pressure vessel containment)

  • 6 local fluid densities

  • 7 flow rates and including break flow

  • liquid level

  • time to start high pressure injection system (HPIS) and low pressure injection system (LPIS)
