CANDU reactors have two independent shutdown systems that can be actuated by the in-core reactor protection system and that are able to effect a rapid reactor shutdown. 0000002822 00000 n Week 2 - Dynamic Characteristics of CANDU Reactors 5-10 H:\Violeta 1 – Word\web\Dynamic Characteristics of CANDU Reactors The CANDU-HWR uses a heavy water radial reflector. ������^� AeIa����e��؟EE��������op6���۠��2��[�d�֙0��N��/�S��A1�Ԝơ�K{��5lH͸l�+�)W��~�8�d�|QD��dn�]�� 1.1 Overview Experts in Fuel channel pressure tubes are critical components of the CANDU reactor core which require periodic inspection to demonstrate continued fitnes s for service. &��l��]R�2��0J���҃�,�9�M�N"AO��Z���"l���̎ The CANDU 6 reactor is the design currently operating in five countries (Argentina, Canada, China, South Korea, and Romania). This feature is unique to CANDU reactors. … approximately apply to the CANDU reactor. Canada deuterium-uranium (CANDU) reactor, boiling water reactor (BWR), pressurized water reactor (PWR), and water moderated, water cooled energy reactor (WWER) plants are documented in the reports. <> Frontmatter (pdf 78kb) as of 2016.12.27; Prologue - CANDU in Context (pdf 1.5Mb) by Dr. William J.
