Abstract

Asignificant amount of operating experience has now been accumulated by boiling-water-reactor power plants. By the end of 1962, over 2200 million kWh of electricity have been generated by three plants operating on utility.system - Dresden Nuclear Power Station, Commonwealth Edison Company, Morris, Illinois; Vallecitos Atomic Power Plant, Pacific Gas and Electric Company and General Electric Company, Pleasanton, California; and Kahl Nuclear Power Station, Rheinisch Westfaelisches Elektrizitaetswerk and Bayernwerk, Kahl-am-Main, West Germany. Boiling-water-reactor power-plant performance, under routine electric-utility operating conditions, has been excellent. Reactor and plant availability and capacity factor provide a sound basis for anticipation of continuing reliable performance from boiling-water-reactor power stations. During 1963, four additional boiling-water-reactor plants will begin power operation: Big Rock Point Nuclear Plant, Consumers Power Company, Charlevoix, Michigan; Humboldt Bay Plant Nuclear Unit, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Eureka, California; Garigliano Nuclear Power Station, Societa Elettronucleare Nazionale, Scauri, Italy; and Japan Power Demonstration Reactor, Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute, Tokai Mura, Japan. The start-up and initial operation of these plants confirms the expectation of reliable performance established by Dresden, Kahl, and Vallecitos. Performance records of Dresden, Kahl and Vallecitos have clearly proved the stability and safety of boiling-water reactors. Additionally, radiation levels within the plant  More>>

By the end of 1962, over 2200 million kWh of electricity have been generated by three plants operating on utility.system - Dresden Nuclear Power Station, Commonwealth Edison Company, Morris, Illinois; Vallecitos Atomic Power Plant, Pacific Gas and Electric Company and General Electric Company, Pleasanton, California; and Kahl Nuclear Power Station, Rheinisch Westfaelisches Elektrizitaetswerk and Bayernwerk, Kahl-am-Main, West Germany. Boiling-water-reactor power-plant performance, under routine electric-utility operating conditions, has been excellent. Reactor and plant availability and capacity factor provide a sound basis for anticipation of continuing reliable performance from boiling-water-reactor power stations. During 1963, four additional boiling-water-reactor plants will begin power operation: Big Rock Point Nuclear Plant, Consumers Power Company, Charlevoix, Michigan; Humboldt Bay Plant Nuclear Unit, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Eureka, California; Garigliano Nuclear Power Station, Societa Elettronucleare Nazionale, Scauri, Italy; and Japan Power Demonstration Reactor, Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute, Tokai Mura, Japan. The start-up and initial operation of these plants confirms the expectation of reliable performance established by Dresden, Kahl, and Vallecitos. Performance records of Dresden, Kahl and Vallecitos have clearly proved the stability and safety of boiling-water reactors. Additionally, radiation levels within the plant and in the environs have been significantly below limits established by operating licences. Simplicity and ease of operation of boiling-water reactors has been confirmed. Load following characteristics of the Dresden dual-cycle boiling-water reactor have been excellent. Major and minor maintenance and repair work can be accomplished by ordinary craft unions, and without undue hardship or time limits caused by radioactivity exposure considerations. Recent full-scale inspection and overhaul of the Dresden turbine provided no maintenance problems, after over 12 000 h of operation on direct-cycle steam and after operation with known failed fuel elements in the reactor. (author) [French] On a maintenant acquis une experience appreciable dans l'exploitation des centrales equipees de reacteurs a eau bouillante. Vers la fin de 1962, on avait produit plus de 2,2.10{sup 9} kWh dans trois centrales nucleaires rattachees a des reseaux de distribution: la centrale de Dresden (Commonwealth Edison Company, Morris, Illinois), la centrale de Vallecitos (Pacific Gas and Electric Company and General Electric Company, Pleasanton, Californie) et la centrale de Kahl (Rheinish-Westfaiisches Elektrizitatswerk et Bayemwerk, a Kahl-sur-le-Main, Republique federale d'Allemagne). Le rendement de ces reacteurs a eau bouillante, exploites dans les conditions normales de production d'electricite, est excellent. On peut donc s'attendre que les centrales a eau bouillante continueront d'etre sures, etant donne le facteur de disponibilite et le facteur de puissance des reacteurs et des installations de ce type. Au cours de 1963, quatre nouvelles centrales equipees de reacteurs a eau bouillante entreront en service: la centrale de Big Rock Point (Consumers Power Company, Charlevoix, Michigan), la centrale de Humboldt Bay (Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Eureka, Californie), la centrale de Garigliano (Societa Elettronucleare Nazionale, Scauri, Italie) et la centrale de demonstration japonaise (Institut de recherches nucleaires du Japon, Tokai Mura, Japon). Les resultats obtenus lors du demarrage et pendant le fonctionnement initial de ces installations confirment les espoirs suscites par les centrales de Dresden, Kahl et Vallecitos. Les journaux de marche des centrales de Dresden, Kahl et Vallecitos mettent en evidence la stabilite et la securite des reacteurs a eau bouillante. De plus, les niveaux de rayonnements dans la centrale et aux alentours restent nettement au-dessous des limites fixees par les permis d'exploitation. La simplicite et la facilite d'exploitation des reacteurs a eau bouillante se sont confirmees. La rapidite de reponse du reacteur de Dresden aux variations de la demande est excellente. Aucun des travaux d'entretien et de reparation, quelle que soit leur importance, n'exige de qualification speciale ni ne comporte de risques de radioexposition excessifs. L'inspection generale et la revision de la turbine de la centrale de Dresden n'ont revele aucun probleme d'entretien apres 12 000 h de fonctionnement avec la vapeur en cycle direct. Or, on avait continue l'exploitation apres avoir constate que des cartouches de combustible etaient deteriorees. (author) [Spanish] El autor sefiala que la experiencia adquirida con la explotacion de centrales nucleoeleonicas que utilizan reactores de agua hirviente es ya bastante considerable. En efecto, al finalizar el aflo 1962 se habian generado mas de 2,2.10{sup 9} kWh en tres centrales nucleoelectricas integradas en redes de distribucion: la central nucleoelectrica de Dresden (Commonwealth Edison Company, Moriis, Illinois), la central nucleoelectrica de Vallecitos (Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Pleasanton, California) y la central nucleoelectrica de Kahl (Reinisch-Westfalisches Elektrizitatswerk y Bayernwerk A.G., Kahl-am-Main, Republica Federal de Alemania). El rendimiento de estas centrales explotadas en condiciones normales de produccion de electricidad es excelente. Los factores de disponibilidad y de capacidad de los reactores y de las plantas constituyen una base firme para prever que las centrales nucleoelectricas dotadas de reactores de agua hirviente funcionaran a regimen continuo en condiciones de seguridad. En 1963 entraran en servicio cuatro nuevas centrales equipadas con reactores de agua hirviente: la central nucleoelectrica de Big Rock Point (Consumere Power Company, Charlevoix, Michigan), la central nucleoelectrica de Humboldt Bay (Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Eureka, California), la central nucleoelectrica de Garigliano (Societa Elettronucleare Nazionale, Scauri, Italia), y el reactor de potencia japones para fines de demostracion (Instituto de Investigaciones Nucleares, Tokai Mura, Japon). La puesta en marcha y el funcionamiento inicial de estas centrales confirma las esperanzas despertadas por las centrales de Dresden, Kahl y Vallecitos. Los registros de rendimiento de las centrales de Dresden, Kahl y Vallecitos han puesto claramente de manifiesto la estabilidad y seguridad de los reactores de agua hirviente. Ademas, los niveles de radiacion dentro de la central y en sus alrededores se han mantenido muy por debajo de los limites fijados en los permisos de explotacion. Ha quedado confirmada la sencillez y facilidad de explotacion de los reactores de agua hirviente. La rapidez de la respuesta del reactor con doble ciclo de Dresden a las fluctuaciones de la demanda es excelente. Ninguno de los trabajos de conservacion y reparacion, sea cual fuere su importancia, exige calificaciones especiales ni entrana riesgos de irradiacion excesivos. La inspeccion general y la revision de la turbina de la central de Dresden puso de manifiesto la inexistencia de problemas de conservacion despues de mas de 12 000 h de funcionamiento con el vapor en ciclo directo, a pesar de que la explotacion prosiguio despues de haberse comDtobado algunas fallas en los elementos combustibles.
