4 Characteristics of the Advanced Accumulator The configurations of the current and new safety systems are shown in Fig. 11. The current safety system is composed of conventional accumulators, low-head injection pumps and high-head injection pumps, which are not shown within the figure. The new safety system is composed of Advanced Accumulators and safety injection pumps, which are also not represented within the figure. The Advanced Accumulator has a flow damper at the bottom of the tank. ) Fig.

8 compares the ECCS configurations of the current 4-loop PWR and APWR. The current 4-loop PWR has two trains of injection systems, conventional accumulators, and a refueling water storage pit outside of the containment vessel. The APWR has some improvements, which include the following: 1. Four trains of the injection system composed of simplified pipe routing for higher reliability 2. Four Advanced Accumulators that allow for the elimination of low-head safety injection pumps 3. An in-containment refueling water storage pit located in the containment vessel for higher reliability Thus, the current ECCS is composed of the accumulator injection system with conventional accumulators, a low-head injection subsystem, and a high-head injection subsystem.

The APWRs have realized a large capacity increase of about 30% or more, compared with the current 4-loop PWRs as shown in Fig. 1. The main features of APWR plant components, as outlined in this section, are as follows: 1. Large reactor core and main components with large capacity (steam generator, primary coolant pump, pressurizer, and turbine) Fig. 1 The trend in output capacity of PWR plants 2 The Advanced Accumulator: A New Passive ECCS Component of the APWR 33 2. Advanced safety systems (four subsystems and refueling water storage pit installed in the reactor containment) 3.
