Abstract [en]

There is a widespread use of thermal hydraulic codes in nuclear industry. The codesare used to analyse the transient and steady-state behavior of the nuclear powerplants. The US Nuclear Regulatory Commission that has long experience of developing such codes are now incorporating the capabilities of their earlier codes into one modern simulation tool, called TRACE. The code is under development and validation work is required especially in the field of BWR applications. Eventually the code is expected to replace similar codes such as TRAC and Relap5.

With this in mind, a TRACE model of Forsmark 1 has been set up to investigate how well it can simulate a plant transient. On the 25th of July, 2006 there was a disturbance at Forsmark 1 that caused the RPV water level and pressure to decrease.In this project, plant data acquired during the event are used to validate the model of Forsmark 1. The validation work is focused on comparing measured and calculated water and pressure levels in the RPC during the transient.

The results show qualitatively good agreement with the validation data, however during a period of the simulations there are large discrepancies concerning the pressure and water level in the RPV. In total, 13 simulations are performed, studying the influences of parameters such as simulation time-step size, the feed water flow boundary conditions and the steam line isolation valve characteristics. Based on the results of the simulations, a number of recommendations are made regarding suggestions for further work.
