Abstract

Safe operation of the Balakovo nuclear power station’s Unit 2 built around a VVER-1000 reactor at a thermal power output of 3120 MW with meeting of the safety criteria and compliance with the requirements of existing regulatory documents is substantiated. Results from measurements of process parameters at a power output equal to 104% of its nominal value are presented.
