UNIT SCRAM DUE TO OPERATIONAL OCCURRENCE IN RCP COMPONENT COOLING CIRCUIT

While operating at rated power the unit was scrammed by the AZ-1 emergency protection due to in-turn tripping of Reactor Coolant Pumps, RCPs-2,1,3,4 respectively. Primary circuit cooldown was performed in the regime of natural circlation. No deviations from safe operation limits and conditions were observed. The cause of RCP trip was the increase of RCP component cooling circuit temperature up to RCP tripping setpoint (45'C) due to detachment of the control valve's cut-off device in the service water supply line for cooling the heat exchanger of RCP component cooling circuit.

UNIT SHUTDOWN DUE TO PERSONNEL ERRORS AND DAMAGE TO RCP 6 KV BREAKER

In the course of repairing a defect in the oil line of auxiliary house transformer the latter was tripped by protection. The unit was shut down. The cause of protection actuation was personnel error. Six hours later while starting RCP-1 short-circuit in the 6 kV breaker cabinet of this pump has occurred due to loss of contact in the breaker phase. The resulting smoke was extinguished by operating personnel in 15 minutes. After replacement of the damaged breaker on 2.6.91 the unit was raised to the minimum controlled power level.
