QUALIFYING CLASS 1E EQUIPMENT FOR NUCLEAR POWER GENERATING STATIONS
Description / Abstract:
This standard sets forth values for the decay heat power from
fission products and actinides following shutdown of light water
reactors (LWRs) using nuclear fuel initially containing 235U and
238U. The decay heat power from fission products is presented in
tables and equivalent analytical representations. Contributions
from the decay of 239U and 239Np and the contributions from all
other actinides are represented separately. Methods are described
that account for the reactor operating history, for the effect of
neutron capture in fission products, and for assessing the
uncertainty in the resultant decay heat power.
