Nominal Power Assimilation in Leningradskaya NPP No. 1 Unit After Service Life Characteristics Restoration of the Graphite Stack
The maximum graphite temperature upon increasing the reactor power in the No. 1 unit of the Leningradskaya NPP to 80% of the nominal value in November–December 2013 after the restoration of the service life characteristics of the graphite stack is presented. A comparative analysis is made of the temperature regime of the graphite stack at power equal to 80 and 100% of nominal value before and after restoration of the service life characteristics at nominal helium content in the gas mixture blown through the reactor space. A comparison is made of the maximum temperature of the graphite stack of the reactors in the No. 1 unit of the Leningradskaya NPP and No. 2 unit of the Kursk NPP upon startup and assimilation of the power after restoration of the service life characteristics. The effect of the restoration of the service life characteristics on the thermohydraulic regime of the fuel channels in the reactor is studied.
