Steady-state simulations of a 30-tube once-through steam generator with the RELAP5/MOD3 and RELAP5/MOD2 computer codes Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • A steady-state analysis of a 30-tube once-through steam generator has been performed on the RELAP5/MOD3 and RELAP5/MOD2 computer codes for 100, 75, and 65% loads. Results obtained are compared with experimental data. The RELAP5/MOD3 results for the test facility generally agree reasonably well with the data for the primary-side temperature profiles. The secondary-side temperature profile predicted by RELAP5/MOD3 at 75 and 65% loads agrees fairly well with the data and is better than the RELAP5/MOD2 results. However, the RELAP5/MOD3 calculated secondary-side temperature profile does not compare well with the 100% load data.
