    • backup power to Y-03/Y-02 PPC power supplies from MCC-3/4 through a static switch
  11. EK-0918 "PIP trouble"
    • brought in by the watchdog timer
    • PPC screen 900 "PPC Network system status"
    • -red is down
    • -magenta is status unknown
  12. Loss of preferred AC bus Y-10 effects on left channel indications for the PPC?
    • Left channel PPC indications from the cutler hammer interface are lost
    • right channel is still available
  13. Effects of loss of Y-20 on the PPC?
    • PIP node lost
    • -lose PIP rod indication on the PPC
    • -lose auto control rod sequencing
    • -lose PPDIL & PDIL overhead annunciators
    • C-12 rod matrix will look different when rods are on the bottom
    • SPI supplies PDIL & PPDIL, rod position
    • cannot do "rod position verification" RO-19
    • lose right channel PPC indications from cutler hammer
  14. What is the Cutler Hammer interface?
    • recieves data from digital/analog inputs monitoring plant systems and passes it to the host computer
    • fail over host will not process inputs from the Cutler-Hammer
    • powered from the UPS via Y-220
  15. How will the PPC be affected if the Host computer is down?
    • the fail over host computer is configured to automatically take over the tasks of the host VAX
    • lose cutler hammer interface
  16. How does static switch Y-230/Y-260 operate?
    • when voltage drops to 105 VDC static switches Y-230/Y-260 auto transfer to MCC-3/4
    • backup power supplied by MCC-3/4 through SOLA transformers
  17. SOE node
    • scans analog points 10 times/sec to aid in trainsient response after certain triggering events
