Being primarily a PWR HP, I was hoping some of you BWR types might help me with
During a normal SCRAM on a BWR, am I correct in assuming that the steam
generated by the reactor is shunted directly to the turbine condenser so it can
be used as a heat sink?
Can somebody walk me thorugh the sequence of SCRAM to cold shutdown as to how
the various systems are activated and approximately what conditions trigger
This is during a "routine" SCRAM (sudden rod insertion) resulting in the system
being taken to cold shutdown. Not a LOCA or some other type of outlier event.
