    RELAP5 code theoretical simulation of the experiment of natural circulation STAR
    2023 - SABUNDJIAN, GAIANE; BELCHIOR JUNIOR, ANTONIO; MAPRELIAN, EDUARDO
    Studies have been carried out on nuclear reactors with safety characteristics that do not depend on external intervention by operators or even on an external energy source. In this type of reactors, cooling is carried out by natural circulation, both during normal operation and during shutdown. For this reason, the STAR experiment was built in the IEA-R1 research reactor installed at the Institute for Energy and Nuclear Research (IPEN) – Brazil, with the aim of simulating experiments with the RELAP5 code in order to validate its models in two scenarios: total and partial emptying of the STAR. The results obtained with the RELAP5 code were compared to the experimental ones for the two proposed scenarios. These results showed that the mathematical correlations contained in RELAP5 are capable of reliably and safely reproducing the phenomenology of natural circulation in nuclear reactors.

    Análise do acidente de perda de refrigerante primário devido a quebra da linha de surto do pressurizador da usina nuclear Angra 2
    2020 - BORGES, EDUARDO M.; CONTI, THADEU das N.; SANCHES, ANDREA; SABUNDJIAN, GAIANE
    O objetivo deste trabalho foi simular e avaliar com o código RELAP5 o acidente base de projeto de perda de refrigerante primário devido a uma ruptura média na linha de surto do pressurizador da usina nuclear Angra 2. Este acidente foi uma quebra do tipo guilhotina ou seja 100% na linha de surto do pressurizador, que representa uma ruptura de 437 cm². Nesta análise, verificou-se que as lógicas de atuação do Sistema de Proteção do Reator (SPR) e do Sistema de Resfriamento de Emergência do Núcleo (SREN) de Angra 2, utilizadas nesta simulação, funcionaram corretamente, mantendo a integridade do núcleo com as temperaturas do núcleo em níveis aceitáveis durante todo o evento. Os resultados obtidos foram satisfatórios, quando comparados com os apresentados no Relatório Final de Análise de Segurança de Angra 2 (FSAR/A2).

    Total and partial loss of coolant experiments in an instrumented fuel assembly of IEA-R1 research reactor
    2020 - MAPRELIAN, EDUARDO; TORRES, WALMIR M.; BELCHIOR JUNIOR, ANTONIO; UMBEHAUN, PEDRO E.; BERRETTA, JOSE R.; SABUNDJIAN, GAIANE
    The safety of nuclear facilities has been a growing global concern, mainly after the Fukushima nuclear accident. Studies on nuclear research reactor accidents such as the Loss of Coolant Accident (LOCA), many times considered a design basis accident, are important for ensure the integrity of the plant. A LOCA may lead to the partial or complete uncovering of the fuel assemblies and it is necessary to assure the decay heat removal as a safety condition. This work aimed to perform, in a safe way, partial and complete uncovering experiments for an Instrumented Fuel Assembly (IFA), in order to measure and compare the actual fuel temperatures behavior for LOCA in similar conditions to research reactors. A test section for experimental simulation of Loss of Coolant Accident named STAR was designed and built. The IFA was irradiated in the IEA-R1 core and positioned in the STAR, which was totally immersed in the reactor pool. Thermocouples were installed in the IFA to measure the clad and fluid temperatures in several axial and radial positions. Experiments were carried out for five levels of uncovering of IFA, being one complete uncovering and four partial uncovering, in two different conditions of decay heat. It was observed that the cases of complete uncovering of the IFA were the most critical ones, that is, those cases presented higher clad temperatures when compared with partial uncovering cases, for the specific conditions of heat decay intensity and dissipation analyzed. The maximum temperatures reached in all experiments were quite below the fuel blister temperature, which is around 500 °C. The STAR has proven to be a safe and reliable experimental apparatus for conducting loss of coolant experiments.
