    near Oak Ridge, Tennessee, called the Clinch River Breeder Reactor Project. The plant was to demonstrate that a liquid metal fast breeder reactor could be licensed and operated safely and reliably on a utility power supply system. The intermediate-size of the plant-- . Abstract: This paper describes the auxiliary electric power system for the Clinch River Breeder Reactor Plant (CRBRP). The power systems covered are the utility grid interconnections, plant power supply systems medium and low voltage AC systems, /V DC system, V vital AC system, and safety related AC distribution system.

The Clinch River is dammed twice: by Norris Dam, the first dam built by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA); and by the Melton Hill Dam, the only TVA dam with a navigation lock that is not located on the main channel of the Tennessee River.. An important tributary of the Clinch River is the Powell Clinch and Powell River drainage basins are separated by Mouth: Tennessee River at Kingston, Tennessee.

      The department is planning to build a $1 billion breeder fuel reprocessing plant, and assuming that 30 percent of the plant is dedicated to Clinch River's needs, this would add $ million to the.   The Clinch River Breeder Reactor Plant must be built as rapidly as possible as an energy insurance policy. This plant does not represent an irrevocable commitment to commercialization, but rather.

The plant would be off Bear Creek Road near Highway 58 on a peninsula surrounded by the Clinch River on the east, south, and : John Huotari. This country has had a small breeder reactor in operation in Idaho since The next larger one, the Fast Flux Test Facility, is about 80% complete at Hanford, Washington.

It includes inputs from the CRBRP Architect-Engineer (Burns and Roe, Inc.). “TVA is preparing an application to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to license up to four B&W mPower SMRs (small modular reactors) at its Clinch River Site,” Charlotte, N.C.-based B&W announced in another news release.

The site, formerly called the Clinch River Breeder Reactor Site. TVA plans to build at least two small modular nuclear reactors on its acre site on the Clinch River in Roane County, about 20 miles southwest of the Bull Run Fossil Plant, which TVA is closing.

The Clinch River Breeder Reactor Plant (CRBRP) Safety Study is an assessment of risks to the public associated with the operation of a MW(e) liquid-metal fast breeder reactor (LMFBR) of the type to be built on the Clinch River site in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.

A breeder-reactor-commercialization program with all the reprocessing, fuel testing, and fuel fabrication plants that would go with it, seemed a worthy successor. But the most powerful political supporter of Clinch River, then-President Richard Nixon, focused on a different point.

Incidentally, the next US demonstration breeder reactor to be built, known as the Clinch River plant, would provide only about one-third as much plutonium, one of the materials that can be used to make weapons, as is produced in any of the conventional nuclear power plants now going on line in this country.

The original core design for the Clinch River Breeder Reactor Plant (CRBRP) was a homogeneous core, as are essentially all of present day liquid metal fast breeder by: 2. The NRC Licensing Project Manager for the Clinch River Breeder Reactor Plant is Richard M.

The Upper Internals Structure (UIS) of the Clinch River Breeder Reactor Plant (CRBRP) provides mixing and flow direction of the core outlet flow.

Alloy tubes are the major components used in the UIS to provide this flow direction. The UIS is located directly above the reactor core and is exposed to a severe environment. The Clinch River Breeder Reactor Project (CRBRP) was a joint effort of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (and a successor agency, the U.S.

Energy Research and Development Administration (ERDA), and subsequently the U.S. Department of Energy) and the U.S. electric power industry to design and construct a sodium-cooled fast-neutron nuclear reactor.

[Westinghouse Electric Corporation. Advanced Reactors Division.; United States. Department of Energy. Technical Information Center.; Project Management Corporation.].The compound system doubling time of the Clinch River Breeder Reactor has been evaluated for a broad range of breeding ratios and fuel cycle parameters.

Reprocessing plant fissile inventory and fissile losses due to incomplete fuel recovery are shown to have a strong influence on the doubling time when the breeding ratio is low.The Clinch River Breeder Reactor Plant PSAR contains. seventeen design oriented chapters in accordance with the Standard Format and Content of Safety Analysis Reports for Nuclear Power Plants -LMFBR Edition (prepared by the•Regulatory Staff of the U.
