1 WP 5 Safety and Transient Analysis Task 5.6 Containment and source term assessment for the ETDR LEADER Lead-cooled European Advanced DEmonstration Reactor WP 5 - MEETING 26th February 2013

2 WP 5 Safety and Transient Analysis Task 5.6 Containment and source term assessment for the ETDR 26 Feb 2013, Petten 1  Participants Royal Institute of Technology – Stockholm (KTH) Empresarios Agrupados (EA)  Objective Provide scoping assessment of the source term available for release to the environment  Thermodynamic calculations  Containment leakage and rates  Calculations of fission products formed Assess the transport of airborne radionuclides in containment Perform calculations of the radiological impact of the releases to the public

3 WP 5 Safety and Transient Analysis Task 5.6 Containment and source term assessment for the ETDR 26 Feb 2013, Petten 2  Second Part: In charge of EA Perform the radiological analysis to determine the impact on the environment Define the methodology to calculate the radiological impact Define the dose limits for each condition Input needed from:  The first part of this Task: Source Term Assessment by KTH  WP 3 Conceptual Design, to define the release mode and the meteorological conditions  Dose assessment for accident condition

4 WP 5 Safety and Transient Analysis Task 5.6 Containment and source term assessment for the ETDR 26 Feb 2013, Petten 3  Dose assessment methodology: A preliminary dose assessment will be performed with the following objectives:  To calculate a preliminary site boundary dose to public (at the Exclusion Area Boundary) based on the reference source terms with no credit to any engineered safeguards.  To verify the compliance with the present European criteria for licensing LWR  To analyse the sensitivity on the dose to the public of the main uncertainties: retention of radionuclides in the primary coolant, fuel damage extension,...  To identify radionuclides with the biggest influence on the environmental dose and to highlight the systems able to limit their release.  To analyse the impact on the results of the dose calculation methodology used.

5 WP 5 Safety and Transient Analysis Task 5.6 Containment and source term assessment for the ETDR 26 Feb 2013, Petten 4  The calculation of accident conditions will be processed according to the Regulatory Guide issued by the US NRC In the calculation process, the ways of contamination considered are:  The external exposure by submersion in a radioactive cloud.  The internal exposure by inhalation of radioactive particles.  No credit is given to the exposure via ingestion of contaminated food (milk, plants, meat…).

6 WP 5 Safety and Transient Analysis Task 5.6 Containment and source term assessment for the ETDR 26 Feb 2013, Petten 5  The dose limits for members of the public set in case of accident condition:  The effective dose limits for members of the public set in case of accidents are (NRC RG 1.183): 250 mSv for the accidents assumed to have the worst radiological consequences: a LOCA, a main steam line break for a PWR, a steam generator tube rupture for a PWR…, etc 63 mSv for accidents with less radiological impact: BWR Rod Drop Accident, PWR ROD Ejection Accident…, etc  The new trends for the dose release targets of currently designed power plants are around 50 mSv for accidents Public Whole body (External exposure) 250 mSv (R.G ) Thyroid (Internal exposure) 3000 mSv (R.G ) TEDE (CEDE+DDE) 250 mSv (R.G )

C) Dose Conversion Factors  FGR-11&12 X/Q  need of meteorological data  Pitesti (Romania) Reference values for accident condition (Spanish NPP) Site Distance (m) X/Q (s/m 3 ) 0-2 h2-8 h8-24 h24-96 h96 h – end Spanish NPP E-41.91E-41.36E-46.66E-52.40E-5

9 WP 5 Safety and Transient Analysis Task 5.6 Containment and source term assessment for the ETDR 26 Feb 2013, Petten 8  Model for RADTRAD calculation: Model simplifications Release into containment = 100% Core Inventory (instantaneous  t=0) x [Volatilization fraction] Containment Removal: only DECAY and LEAKAGE (environment) NO Sprays, NO Deposition
