Title: CONTROL ROD DRIVE MECHANISM, PRECRITICAL AND INITIAL CRITICAL TESTS. CORE I, SEED 2. Section 2. Test Results T-550010

Abstract

The control rod drive mechanisms and associated instrumentation in the Shippingport PWR were in satisfactory operating condition. Deficiencies that were observed during the test and subsequently corrected were: no positive indication of movement in rods 11, 82, 62, 53, and 14, as shown on the rod position indicating lights; and the bottom indicator coil for rod 81 was connected improperly. After the deficiencies were corrected, the test was rerun for the rods in question and all operated satisfactorily. (auth)
