3] Assume a pressurized water reactor has the parameters specified in the example at

the end of Chapter 8.3. Assume the core has a thermal resistance or R f = 0.50 oC/MW(t),

. If the reactor fuel and moderator temperature coefficients are f 3.2 10 o C1 and

m 1.4 105 o C1

a. Determine the isothermal temperature coefficient.

b. Determine the power coefficient.

Part a: From Eq. (9.29) the isothermal temperature coefficient is just

T f m 3.2 105 1.4 10

5 / o C

Part b: Following Eq. (9.33) the power coefficient is

P R f f (2Wc p ) 1 ( f c )

Using data from Chapter 8 example

Wc p 27.2 103 kg/s6.4 10

Thus

Thus the fuel provides much more of the power coefficient than does the coolant.

[9.4] At full power 1000 MW(t) sodium-cooled fast reactor has coolant inlet and outlet

temperatures of 350 and 500 oC, and an average fuel temperature of 1,150 oC. The fuel

and coolant temperature coefficients are f 1.8 10 / C and c 0.45 10 / C .

a. Estimate the core thermal resistance and the mass flow rate, taking for sodium c p

= 1,250 J/kg/ 0 C .

b. Estimate the temperature and power defects, assuming a cold temperature of

180 0 C .

Part a: Take the average coolant temperature from Eq. (8.39) as

Tc 1 2 (Ti To ) 1 2 (350 500) 425 0 C

From Eq. (8.32) the thermal resistance is

[9.5] A 3000 MW(t) pressurized water reactor has the following specifications:; core

thermal resistance 0.45 oC/MW(t), coolant flow, 68x106 kg/hr; coolant specific heat

6.4x103 J/kg oC . The fuel temperature coefficient is

and the coolant temperature coefficient by

a. Over what temperature range is the core overmoderated?

b. What is the value of the temperature defect? Assume room temperature of 35 oC

and an operating coolant inlet temperature of 290 oC.

c. What is the value of the power defect?

Part a: As we learned in chapter 4 a liquid cooled and moderated reactors temperature

coefficient is positive if it is overmoderated. This is based on the isothermal temperature

coefficient. Thus for this problem

Determining the temperature at which this coefficient vanishes analytically, involves

solving a quadric equation. Instead we simply plot the coefficient.

[9.7] For the reactor specified in problem [9.4] the power is maintained at 1,000 MW(t)

while the following quasi-static changes are made

a. the inlet temperature is slowly decreased by 10 0C

b. The flow rate is slowly increased by 10%.

For each of these cases determine by how much the reactivity must be increased or

decreased to keep the reactor running at constant power.

For the simple model of problem [9.4] the reactivity is found in Eq. (9.36) , with the

absolute value signs removed to allow positive as well as negative temperature

coefficients . Since the reactor must be maintained in a critical state for the power to be

constant. We have (t ) 0 , and hence

i (t ) f T f (t ) T f (0) c Tc (t ) Tc (0) 0

where i (t ) is the control activity, which must be added or subtracted to keep the reactor

at constant power Under quasi static conditions the fuel and moderator temperatures are

determined by Eqs. (9.45) and (9.46), which we modify to allow slow changes in the flow

rate and inlet temperature :

Before proceeding we must calculate the flow rate: Form Eq. (8.37) the mass flow rate is

Plugging in the parameters from problem [9.4] into the reactivity equation:

W (0)

i (t ) 1.35 105

1 225 Ti (t ) Ti (0)

W (t )

If the inlet temperature decreases, the feedback reactivity increases, thus the control

system must subtract reactivity.

Part b: W (0) / W (t ) 1/1.1 0.909

W (0)

i (t ) 1.35 105

W (t )

Increasing the flow rate, decreases fuel and coolant temperature. Thus the feedback

reactivity positive, and the control system must subtract reactivity to maintain criticality.
