Passive Cooling System For Top Entry Liquid Metal Cooled Nuclear Reactors

View page
US Patent:
5158741, Oct 27, 1992
Filed:
Aug 16, 1991
Appl. No.:
7/745785
Inventors:
Charles E. Boardman - Saratoga CA
Anstein Hunsbedt - Los Gatos CA
Marvin M. Hui - Cupertino CA
Assignee:
General Electric Company - San Jose CA
International Classification:
G21C 1518
US Classification:
376299
Abstract:
A liquid metal cooled nuclear fission reactor plant having a top entry loop joined satellite assembly with a passive auxiliary safety cooling system for removing residual heat resulting from fuel decay during shutdown, or heat produced during a mishap. This satellite type reactor plant is enhanced by a backup or secondary passive safety cooling system which augments the primary passive auxiliary cooling system when in operation, and replaces the primary cooling system when rendered inoperative.

Containment Pressure Suppression System For Liquid Metal Cooled Reactors

US Patent:
5706320, Jan 6, 1998
Filed:
Jan 16, 1996
Appl. No.:
8/585879
Inventors:
Charles Edward Boardman - Saratoga CA
Marvin Man-Wai Hui - Cupertino CA
Assignee:
General Electric Company - Schenectady NY
International Classification:
G21C 9004
G21C 19303
US Classification:
376283
Abstract:
A pressure suppressing and aerosol scrubbing system configured to be located between low pressure upper containments associated with modular reactor vessels is described. In one embodiment, the pressure suppression and scrubbing system includes a water tank having connected, partially filled water chambers and a vertical baffle having horizontal vent holes positioned near the bottom of the tank. Each water chamber is connected by a vent/relief line to one of the respective rectangular upper containments. The partially filled water tank assures that the respective containments are isolated from each other under normal operating conditions due to the water trap inherent in the system. In the event that an accident occurs in one of the reactors, the affected containment is heated by the sodium spray and/or pool fire and such heat forces its way through the pressure suppressing and scrubbing system to the unaffected reactor containment. The suppressing and scrubbing system cools the gasses and removes sodium and fission products so that relatively few radioactive fission products are introduced into the containment volume associated with un-affected reactor containment and the containment design temperature and pressure can be reduced.

Liquid Metal Reactor Power Block

View page
US Patent:
6185269, Feb 6, 2001
Filed:
Sep 8, 1998
Appl. No.:
9/149602
Inventors:
Marvin Man-Wai Hui - Cupertino CA
Assignee:
General Electric Company - Schenectady NY
International Classification:
G21C 900
G21C 9008
US Classification:
376283
Abstract:
A seismically isolated liquid metal reactor power block is described. In one embodiment, the liquid metal reactor power block is a substantially rectangular nuclear plant with two nuclear islands and a common liquid metal service facility commonly supported on a seismic isolation platform near grade level. The seismic isolation platform supports the nuclear islands in a mirror-symmetric arrangement on opposite sides of a shared liquid metal service facility. A containment pressure suppression system connects the primary pressure relief volumes of the containment structures of each nuclear island to that of the other and also to a common pressure relief volume in the liquid metal service facility, thereby reducing the pressure load on each individual containment structure.

Dual-Phase Reactor Plant With Partitioned Isolation Condenser

View page
US Patent:
5145639, Sep 8, 1992
Filed:
Jul 22, 1991
Appl. No.:
7/733902
Inventors:
Marvin M. Hui - Cupertino CA
Assignee:
General Electric Company - San Jose CA
International Classification:
G21C 1518
US Classification:
376283
Abstract:
A nuclear energy plant housing a boiling-water reactor utilizes an isolation condenser in which a single chamber is partitioned into a distributor plenum and a collector plenum. Steam accumulates in the distributor plenum and is conveyed to the collector plenum through an annular manifold that includes tubes extending through a condenser pool. The tubes provide for a transfer of heat from the steam, forming a condensate. The chamber has a disk-shaped base, a cylindrical sidewall, and a semispherical top. This geometry results in a compact design that exhibits significant performance and cost advantages over prior designs.

Passive Cooling Safety System For Liquid Metal Cooled Nuclear Reactors

View page
US Patent:
5043136, Aug 27, 1991
Filed:
Jun 21, 1990
Appl. No.:
7/541647
Inventors:
Anstein Hunsbedt - Los Gatos CA
Charles E. Boardman - Saratoga CA
Marvin M. Hui - Sunnyvale CA
Robert C. Berglund - Saratoga CA
Assignee:
General Electric Company - San Jose CA
International Classification:
G21C 1518
US Classification:
376299
Abstract:
A liquid metal cooled nuclear reactor having a passive cooling system for removing residual heat resulting from fuel decay during reactor shutdown. The passive cooling system comprises a plurality of partitions surrounding the reactor vessel in spaced apart relation forming intermediate areas for circulating heat transferring fluid which remove and carry away heat from the reactor vessel. The passive cooling system includes a closed primary fluid circuit through the partitions surrounding the reactor vessel and a partially adjoining secondary open fluid circuit for carrying transferred heat out into the atmosphere.
