Title: SPEAR 3: the First Year of Operation

Abstract

The first electrons were accumulated in the newly completed 3-GeV SPEAR 3 storage ring on December 15, 2003, five days after the beginning of commissioning. By mid-January of 2004, 100 mA were stored, the maximum current allowed in the first phase of SPEAR 3 operation, and ring characterization and tuning continued until early March when the first photon beam line was opened for users. After the first year of operation the SPEAR 3 beam properties and ring performance had been extensively measured. These include micron stability using slow orbit feedback, an emittance coupling of {approx}0.1% and 50-h lifetimes. The performance of SPEAR 3 during its first year of commissioning and operation and the improvement plans are described.

  • The results gained from the comprehensive factory and field testing of the Biblis ''A'' turbine-generator, as well as the subsequent operational experience, greatly augment the knowledge derived from placing smaller machines in service and will be utilized to optimize the design of future KWU and A-CPSI nuclear-powered units. The majority of the future units lies in the capability range of 1200 to 1300 MW and, consequently, will profit to a high degree from the experience obtained with the Biblis ''A'' machine. By eliminating the deficiencies that were revealed by the Biblis ''A'' turbine-generator in service, the operating availability of themore » sister machines can be expected to exceed appreciably the outstanding level already achieved by the Biblis ''A'' unit. In an endeavor to consolidate the considerable technical advances in nuclear power generation that have been achieved in a remarkably short period, the electric utility industry may want to standardize nuclear units at about 1300 MW for some time in the near-term future.« less
  • Results from the first year of operation of the solar ground coupling research facility at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) are presented. Nine experiments which are first generation ground coupled heat transfer and storage devices for a solar source heat pump system have been operated since December, 1978. Experimental results from December, 1978 to September, 1979 are presented and compared to model predictions. 6 refs.
  • As of mid-Nov. 1978, the Cove Point LNG terminal, jointly owned by Columbia LNG Corp. and Consolidated System LNG Co., has received 13 shiploads of LNG from Algeria, delivering 30 billion cu ft of gas to regional distribution systems without significant operating or safety problems. Although the terminal has not yet reached its design throughput, performance has been very satisfactory. Although the project required nearly $3 billion for liquefaction, shipping, receiving, and regasification facilities, the gas will enter distribution mains at only $1.89/million Btu.
  • The spray dryer/fabric filter pilot unit discussed in this paper provides an opportunity to characterize spray dryer and fabric filter performance under actual high-sulfer-coal flue gas conditions. This will provide design information for utilities that are contemplating new or retrofit installations of this technology to power plants firing high-sulfer coal. The paper provides a description of the spray dryer/fabric filter pilot unit process and equipment, then presents results through April 1988. The results presented document SO {sub 2} removal, particulate control performance, fabric filter pressure drop and bag characteristics. Other impacts of the spray dryer on the fabric filter aremore » also discussed.« less
  • A simulation study has been successfully completed according to the first year FCF operational plan for the treatment of EBR-II spent fuels. Material flow by nuclides for each processing step and radioactive decays during the process are considered. The FCFPYRO code package is a very useful tool to provide step-by-step information essential to the analysis of operational strategy, process chemistry, heat removal, criticality safety, and radiological health issues in FCF.
