Ultrareliable Measuring Complex for Nuclear Reactor of New Generation
Technical solutions applied to a special complex for measuring position of a control rod in the primary coolant circuit of nuclear reactor are considered. These solutions have provided an increased accuracy, sensitivity, fault-tolerance, and lifetime. The primary transducer lifetime is comparable with reactor lifetime. The measuring complex also carries out developed self-diagnostics and diagnostics of a drive that moves the control rod. The results of the measuring complex use are analyzed.
