Abstract

A PWR Reactivity Insertion Accidents (RIA) analysis capability, based on the three-dimensional coupled thermal-hydraulic/neutronics code TRAC-PF1/NEM, has been developed. Several verification and validation studies were conducted showing that TRAC-PF1/NEM is qualified for RIA applications. The applications of TRAC-PF1/NEM to Rod Ejection Accident and the Main Steam Line Break transient analyses to upgrade the power of the TMI-1 NPP were also conducted. In these applications, TRAC-PF1/NEM was used with the Studsvik of America CASMO-3/SIMULATE-3 code package.
