The impact of americium on the ULOF and UTOP transients of the European Lead-cooled SYstem (ELSY)
2012 (English)In: Annals of Nuclear Energy, ISSN 0306-4549, E-ISSN 1873-2100, Vol. 47, 104-109 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The Unprotected Loss-of-Flow (ULOF) transient and the Unprotected Transient-Over-Power (UTOP) have been evaluated for the European Lead-cooled SYstem (ELSY) for americium concentrations in the fuel between 0% and 10%. With americium in the core, the ELSY design exceeds the maximum allowed asymptotic temperature limit for fuel during UTOP, except for low Am contents. During ULOF, fuel and clad temperatures stabilize below the asymptotic temperature limits.
