Abstract

The Consejo de Seguridad Nuclear (CSN) and the Asociación Nuclear Vandellós have developed a model of Vandellos II Nuclear Power Plant. The ANV collaboration consisted in the supply of design and actual data, the cooperation in the simulation of the control systems and other model components, as well as in the results analysis.

The obtained model has been assessed against the following transients occurred in plant:

- A trip from the 100% power level (CSN)
- A load rejection from 100% to 50% (CSN)
- A load rejection from 75% to 65% (ANV)
- A feedwater turbopump trip (ANV)

This copy is a report of the load rejection from 75% to 65% transient simulation. This transient was one of the tests carried out in Vandellós II NPP during the startup tests.
