Abstract
  • Reflux condensation tests examining steam condensation in a PWR steam generator (SG) were conducted at the Oregon State University (OSU) Advanced Plant Experiment (APEX) Test Facility from 2005 through 2007. The experimental data collected will provide a basis to assess TRACE steam generator modeling techniques and assist in development of improved models for condensation and steam generator thermal-hydraulics. The data collected using the APEX facility is also applied to the EPR reactor design. During a small break loss of coolant accident, reflux condensation may be used in removing the decay heat after reactor shutdown. It has been determined that the decay heat generated after shutdown can be removed by controlling the secondary side pressure to create a temperature difference.
