10CFR21 SUBSTANTIAL SAFETY HAZARD EVALUATION INTERIM REPORT

DESCRIPTION OF DEVIATION:

A power supply, procured for use in the Nuclear Instrument System(NIS) source ranges (SR), when drawn from stock and placed in NIS SR channel N-31, did not work properly when installed in the -25 VDC slot. However, the power supply functioned properly when installed in the +25 VDC slot. This power supply is expected to function properly in both the positive and negative slots. It is not known whether this was a deviation present since receipt from the vendor, or was initiated during installation activities at Ginna Station (and not a deviation).

REFERENCE DOCUMENTS :

Rochester Gas & Electric Purchase Order NQ15139-C-JW

DATE WHEN EVALUATION WILL BE COMPLETED:

The power supply will be sent to the vendor to perform a failure mode assessment and determine if the power supply was deficient at the time of receipt. It is estimated that this evaluation will be completed by October 1, 1999.
