Abstract [en]

The pressure suppression pool of a Nordic Boiling Water Reactor (BWR) serves as a heat sink to condense steam from the primary coolant system in normal operation and accident conditions. Thermal stratification can develop in the pool when buoyancy forces overcome the momentum created by the steam injection. In this case, hot condensate forms a hot layer at the top of the pool, reducing the pool cooling and condensation capacity compared to mixed conditions. The Effective Heat Source and Effective Momentum Source (EHS/EMS) models were previously proposed to model the large-scale pool behavior during a steam injection. In this work, we use CFD code of ANSYS Fluent with the EHS/EMS models to simulate the transient behavior of a Nordic BWR pool during a steam injection through spargers. First, a validation against a Nordic BWR pool test with complete mixing is presented. Prediction of the pool behavior for other possible injection scenarios show that stratification can occur at prototypic steam injection conditions, and that the hot layer temperature above the injection point can be non-uniform. In cases with significant steam condensation inside the sparger pipes, the 95 degrees C pool temperature limit for the Emergency Core Cooling System (ECCS) pumps was reached similar to 7 h after the beginning of the blowdown.
