Correlation Of Theory And Experiment For The Dynamics Of A Pressurized Water Reactor, J. G. Thakkar

Masters Theses

Dynamic tests were performed on the Carolina Power and Light Company's H. B. Robinson Unit 2 to determine the frequency response of the PWR steam supply system. Step inputs and multi-frequency binary signals of various sequence lengths and bit durations were used. The signals were introduced manually by the operator both for reactivity perturbation and steam flow perturbation tests. The experimental results were analyzed on and IBM 360/65 computer. The test results were compared with theoretical results predicted by a mathematical model of the system.

A mathematical model for the H. B. Robinson system was formulated. In most ...
