Title: INSTRUMENTATION AND CONTROLS STUDY FOR SM-1 NUCLEAR POWER PLANT. VOLUME I. VOLUME II

Abstract

Volume II prepared by Stromberg-Carlson, Inc. and Catalytic Construction Co. for Alco Products, Inc. The purpose of the study was to determine the control and instrumentation deficiencies and the corrective action to be taken to improve the reliability of the SM-1 plant. The scope of the investigation was that of the entire plant instrumentation and controls with emphasis upon the most troublesome areas. Objectives of the study were met by the pursuit of three interrelated projects: (a) evaluation of difficulties caused by existing plant controls and instrumentation; (b) evaluation of existing controls and instrumentation at the SM-1 against modern controls and instrumentation; and (c) full scoping of redesign and replacement of the SM-1 plant controls and instrument. Independent assessments of the nuclear and process instrumentation are given. (W.D.M.)
