Example text

To establish a reflooding condition of the core by maintaining the water level in the downcomer after refilling the core Hence, the performance requirements for the Advanced Accumulator design are the requirements for large flow injection, which comes from Step 1, and for small flow injection which comes from Step 2. The requirements for large flow injection during the refilling period are that the water volume for large flow injection in the accumulator tank should cover the total volume of the lower plenum and downcomer regions of the reactor vessel, and that the lower plenum and the downcomer should be filled with borated water as rapidly as possible during the refilling period.

The lower inlet port of the small flow pipe is on the same level as the vortex chamber at the bottom of the tank. The standpipe is connected 46 T. Shiraishi Fig. 15 The principle of the Advanced Accumulator showing flow patterns depending on the water level in the accumulator tank to the large flow pipe. The inlet port of the standpipe is located at the middle level of the accumulator tank where there is a boundary between the large and small flow volumes. The outlet pipe is connected to the injection pipe at the boundary of the wall of the accumulator tank.

Safety for these sequences is improved by redundancy enhancement of high-pressure core injection systems, redundancy enhancement of RHR systems and diversity enhancement of the scram system in the ABWR, respectively.
