Investigations on Accident Management Measures for VVER-1000 Reactors
19th Symposium of AER on VVER Reactor Physics and Reactor Safety (2009, Varna, Bulgaria)
Reactor Dynamics, Thermal Hydraulics and Safety Analysis, CFD Analysis
A consequence of a total loss of AC power supply (station blackout) leading to unavailability
of major active safety systems which could not perform their safety functions is that the safety
criteria ensuring a secure operation of the nuclear power plant would be violated and a
consequent core heat-up with possible core degradation would occur.
