Abstract:

Results of six years of uninterrupted operation of the first in the world atomic electric power station are described, and various operational conditions of the station and its parameters in these conditions are discussed. The operation of heat generating elements and the method of partial overloads was realized for the first time at the station and attained combustion of the fuel considerably higher than the planned value. Greater attention was devoted to experimental operations connected with the conversion of the station into boiling operation, operation in this condition and realization of nuclear overheating of steam in the reactor. A system of emergency localization is described. This system is intended for the prevention of ejection of vapor-gas mixture into the ventilation system and purification of gas ejected after trouble with a heat generating element. The system was created in connection with the presence of a greater number of experimental channels at the first atomic electric power station. Author
