Re: [cdn-nucl-l] cdn-nucl-l: poison injection as a fast shutdown system
Ben, Adam, Jeremy and others who replied off list,
Thank you for the information on the CANDU SDS-2 system. Yes, that
Darlington figure of -55 mk stands out against the others.
So, following the non-CANDU road now, the impressions are that
poison injection is not used as a fast shutdown mechanism for PWRs or
even BWRs. Is this indeed the case and if not, the remaining question I
have is whether it is possible and if so how is it done, to inject
soluble poison into a high pressure system.
Fast shutdown systems for a PWR/BWR? Rods plus .... ? ..... One
thought was depressurization of the core as that would lead to voiding.
Interesting as that is a self-limiting type system. Thoughts?
Have a nice long weekend folks,
