The functions of the Advanced Accumulators are encompassed within the following two steps: 1. To immediately refill the lower plenum and the downcomer of the reactor vessel during refilling period following blow down of reactor coolant 2. To establish a reflooding condition of the core by maintaining the water level in the downcomer after refilling the core Hence, the performance requirements for the Advanced Accumulator design are the requirements for large flow injection, which comes from Step 1, and for small flow injection which comes from Step 2.

The structure of a vortex in the vortex chamber is more complicated than that of the one-dimensional model. Velocity boundary layers practically develop on the upper- and lower-disk walls of the vortex chamber, while an inviscid swirl flow develops between them. Since viscosity reduces tangential velocity, the centrifugal force is so weak that the radial component of velocity becomes larger in the boundary layers than that in the inviscid vortex. This is the reason why the exponent, n, varies between À1 and 1.

Shiraishi Fig. 3 Advanced Safety Systems In the APWR, the emergency core cooling system (ECCS) has a 4-train configuration (4 Â 50% capacity) instead of the conventional 2-train configuration (2 Â 100% capacity) to improve safety. The new configuration increases the reliability of equipment operation in the case of an accident as the best mix of active and passive safety systems. The systems of each train are installed near the corresponding loop to reduce the quantity of piping and enhance the separation and independence of each train.
