The CANDU (Canada Deuterium Uranium) is a Canadian pressurized heavy-water reactor design used to generate electric power. The acronym refers to its deuterium oxide (heavy water) moderator and its use of (originally, natural) uranium fuel. CANDU reactors were first developed in the late s and s by a partnership between Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL), the Hydro-Electric Power. A new book offers perhaps the clearest, and fullest, look at the catastrophe yet. No aspect of the disaster and its aftermath is ignored. With his detailing of the reactor’s many design.

• discuss the basic design features of the current CANDU plant (some, but not all, of which are retained in the ACR design), • present the computer programs used in reactor physics, and • describe some of the more important modelling and analytical capabilities of the reactor-physics toolset. CANDU-PHW reactor core by introducing an annulus of enriched uranium around the central region of natural uranium. The incentive for such a study is the possibility of improving the uranium resource utilization and reducing costs. For various outer zone enrichments and inner zone.

CANDU 6 is our MWe class nuclear power reactor. The first CANDU 6 plants went into service in the early s as leading-edge technology, and the design has continuously evolved since to. develop light-water reactors for power, which followed ffrom rom tthe he successful American nuclearnuclear - submarine program. • A distinctive, world-class Canadian reactor design was born – a great technological success and a proud feat for a country with a small population.

DISTINCTIVE SAFETY ASPECTS OF THE CANDU-PHW REACTOR DESIGN by G. Kugler Foreword Two lectures are presented in this report. They were prepared in response to a request from the IAEA to provide information on the "Special Characteristics of the Safety Analysis of Heavy Water Reactors" to delegates from member states attending the Inter.

This paper describes those features of the design of the CANDU-PHW reactor [1] and its fuel [2] that differ significantly from other reactor systems, and their effect on the development of fuel models for transient conditions.

Aspects of reactor design and modelling that are essentially similar to other systems are generally not included. by: 1. CAREM is an indirect cycle reactor with some distinctive features that greatly simplify the design and also contributes to a high safety level.

Some of the high-level design characteristics are: Integrated primary cooling system (i.e. the primary circuit and the steam generators are located entirely within the reactor pressure vessel (RPV)).Cited by: core. This is a distinctive safety feature of the pressure tube reactor design.

• The maximum reactivity rates achievable by driving all control devices together is about mklsecond, which is well within the design capability ofthe shutdown systems. Department ofNuclear Technology FaCUlty ofEngineering Chulalongkom University. Safety Considerations in Reactor Design. Reactors require much attention to safety details in the design process due to the hazards they impose.

They are often the highest temperature point in the process, heat of reaction may be released, and residence times can be long leading to a large inventory of chemicals. safety of the public and plant personnel is of paramount importance. This recognition has led to the development of comprehensive Canadian reactor safety principles which govern the design and operation of CANDU units.

The Atomic Energy Control Board (AECB), licenses the design, construction, and operation of these units on the basis of. Chemical control and design considerations for CANDU-PHW Steam Generators.

Some aspects of heat and mass transfer in steam-generating elements of nuclear power plants. Styrikovich. Optimization of decontamination strategy for CANDU-PHW reactors. Walton. are plant-specific aspects of the potential for such a release, but also broad similarities.

Flaws discovered in in the CANDU reactor at Point Lepreau in New Brunswick (Canada) have raised concerns about safety, inspection and management issues associated with the Canadian CANDU reactor design, in Canada and internationally. For educational use only, no assumed liability.

Description. This Safety Guide provides recommendations and guidance on how to meet the requirements established in Specific Safety Requirements No. SSR-2/1 and in General Safety Requirements No. GSR Part 4 for the identification of structures, systems and components (SSCs) important to safety in nuclear power plants and for their classification on the basis of their function and safety.

The design program includes sub-programs of pressure boundary, civil structures, safety systems, fuel, nuclear core, electrical power systems, and instrument and control systems to ensure that SSCs that are important to safety and security, and any modifications to them, continue to meet their design bases given new information arising over.

In India they are called PHWRs a design derivative of CANDU reactors of Canada. There is nothing bad about CANDU reactors other than may be cost.
