Paper Title:
Loss of Feed Water Accident in an Integral Pressurized Water Reactor (IPWR)
  Abstract

In this paper research has been carried out on Loss of Feed Water Accident (LOFW) scenario of the Integral Pressurized Water Reactor ( IPWR) under two circumstances by the use of thermal hydraulic system code i.e Relap5/Mod3.4. In the first one, Passive Residual Heat Removal System (PRHRS) which is designed to absorb core residual heat in case of transient conditions is included which has the function of operating under the accident vulnerabilities. Concerning with the second case i.e without the use of PRHRS rather a tank of water which has the capacity of about 8% of the total feed water supply and is operated under accident scenario is considered. Taken into account these conditions,first the nodalization diagram of the two cases have been figured out then according to the LOFW accident time event scenario use the Relap5 code to simulate the accident. Finally the graphical explanation (separately) of the two cases with graphical approach as well as the conclusion is given at the end.
