  2. Following a reactor scram on Unit Two, plant conditions are:
     
    Reactor water level     +230", rising, N027A/B
    Reactor pressure        700 psig, steady
    Drywell ref leg temp   195°F
     
    Per the Reactor Scram Procedure (EOP·01-RSP).  MSIVs must be closed if RPV level cannot be maintained below the elevation of the main steam lines.  At this level,

    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  7. During execution of EOP-01-RVCP on Unit Two, emergency depressurization becomes required due to low reactor water level.  The operator places the control switches for 7 ADS valves to Open and observes that only 4 ADS valves have opened.  The operator is then directed to place additional SRV switches to open until 7 ADS/SRVs are open.  No additional ADS/SRVs can be opened.
     
    Reactor pressure is currently 600 psig, lowering.  What action, if any, is required?
     
    A.   Enter the alternate emergency depressurization procedure.
    B.    Enter the primary containment flooding procedure.
    C.    Perform actions to anticipate emergency depressurization.
    D.   Continue depressurization with 4 ADS valves, no other action is required.
    A.   Enter the alternate emergency depressurization procedure.
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  8. Unit Two was operating at rated power.  Both Reactor Feedpumps tripped.  HPCI and RCIC both failed.  CRD flow has been maximized and SLC is injecting demin water to stabilize RPV level.
     
    Current plant conditions:
     
    RPV level                                +30"
    RPV pressure                         950 psig
    Drywell pressure                     1.9 psig
    Drywell average temp                        165°F
               
    What action can be performed, and is required to control containment parameters?
    A.   Defeat drywell cooler LOCA lockout per SEP-10.
    B.   Spray the suppression chamber per SEP-03.
    C.    Vent the drywell per OP-10.
    D.    Vent the suppression chamber per SEP-01.
    A.   Defeat drywell cooler LOCA lockout per SEP-10.


    PCCP DW/T leg directs operating available drywell coolers defeating LOCA logic if necessary.  Drywell cooler LOCA lockout logic can be defeated per SEP-10 if drywell coolers have tripped due to low level and actual LOCA conditions do not exist in the drywell.  PCCP PC/P directs venting drywell per OP-10, but this cannot be done with drywell pressure >1.7 psig.  Suppression chamber spray is also directed by PCCP PC/P, but cannot be done with drywell pressure <2.7 psig.  Venting per SEP-01 is not performed until pressure approaches PCPL-A (or hydrogen is detected).
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  9. Unit1 Plant conditions:
     
    Reactor shutdown.
    Reactor pressure: 925 psig.
    1A CRD pump is running.
    No other injection available.
    Reactor water level is -75 inches and slowly lowering
    Primary Containment parameters are normal
     
    Under the above listed conditions, the operating crew should:
    A.    anticipate Emergency Depressurization
    B.    enter the Alternate Emergency Depressurization Procedure
    C.   Emergency Depressurize the RPV
    D.   enter the Steam Cooling Procedure
    C.   Emergency Depressurize the RPV
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  10. Following a large line break in Unit Two (2) Primary Containment, plant conditions are:
     
    Reactor Water level                       -50", steady
    Reactor Pressure                          10 psig
    Core Spray Pump 2A                    Injecting at 5500 gpm
    Core Spray Pump 2B                    Unavailable
    RHR Loop 2A                                 Injecting (LPCI) at 17,000 gpm
    RHR Loop 2B                                Unavailable
    Suppression Pool Temperature    145 F and rising
     
    What action is required by EOP-01-RVCP for RHR Loop 2A?
     
    A.    Maintain maximum injection to the Reactor Vessel unless reactor water level can be restored and maintained > TAF.
    B.   Throttle LPCI flow to 11,500 gpm, close the heat exchanger bypass valve, operate RHR SW at a minimum flow rate of 8000 gpm.
    C.    Maintain maximum injection to the Reactor Vessel unless reactor water level can be restored and maintained > LL4.
    D.   Transfer RHR Loop 2A to Drywell Spray with at least 7700 gpm through the heat exchanger; operate RHR SW at a minimum flowrate of 4000 gpm.
    B.   Throttle LPCI flow to 11,500 gpm, close the heat exchanger bypass valve, operate RHR SW at a minimum flow rate of 8000 gpm.
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  11. Unit One plant conditions:
     
    Reactor is shutdown (all rods in)
    Reactor pressure is 1000 psig
    RCIC is injecting to the RPV
    No other injection Is available
    Reactor water level is -35 inches and lowering
    Drywell reference leg area temperature is 290°F
     
    What action is required?
     
    A.   Wait until RPV level drops to LL4, then perform emergency depressurization.
    B.    Wait until RPV lever drops to LL4, then perform steam cooling procedure.
    C.    Immediately perform emergency depressurization.
    D.   Wait until RPV level drops to TAF, then perform emergency depressurization.
    A.   Wait until RPV level drops to LL4, then perform emergency depressurization.


    Level is currently above TAF (TAF is -42.5" using caution 1 correction graphs).  Emergency depressurization is normally performed when level drops below TAF if a High volume system (condensate, RHR, or core spray) is available.  Since no high Volume system is available, ED is not performed until LL4.  Steam cooling would be performed if no injection available, with RCIC injecting.  ED is performed even though RCIC would be lost (most likely transition to SAMG if no other sources are made available).

  12. Following a large line break in Unit Two primary containment, plant conditions are:
     
    Reactor Water level          -50 inches, steady
    Reactor Pressure              10 psig
    Core Spray Pump 2A       Injecting at 5500 gpm
    Core Spray Pump 2B       Unavailable
    RHR Loop2A                    Injecting (LPCI) at 17,000 gpm
    RHR Loop2B                    Unavailable
    Suppr pool temp               148°F
     
    What action is required by EOP-01-RVCP for RHR loop 2A?
     

    A. Maintain maximum injection to the reactor vessel until reactor water level can be restored and maintained above LL4.
    B. Maintain maximum injection to the reactor vessel until reactor water level can be restored and maintained above TAF.
    C. Throttle LPCI flow to 11,500 gpm, close the heat exchanger bypass valve, and operate RHR SW at a flowrate of 8000 gpm. D. Transfer RHR 2A to drywell spray with at least 7700 gpm through the heat exchanger, and operate RHR SW at a flowrate of at least 4000 gpm.
    C. Throttle LPCI flow to 11,500 gpm, close the heat exchanger bypass valve, and operate RHR SW at a flowrate of 8000 gpm.


    Step PC/L-44 of EOP-01-RVCP requires containment cooling requirements of the UFSAR be established.  This step is reached since RPV level is below LL4.  but above 2/3 core height with core spray injecting at least 4700 gpm.  RVCP requires establishing these cooling requirements even if LPCI flow will be reduced.  Since 11,500 gpm is required RHR flow rate with RHR Loop B unavailable.  Drywell spray will not satisfy the requirements.
  13. Unit 2 has scrammed due to a condensate header rupture.  RCIC is injecting at 500 gpm; HPCI, SLC and CRD are unavailable.  Reactor water level has dropped to +20”, but is currently +35” and slowly rising.  ADS has been inhibited.
     
    With NO indications of fuel failure, how should reactor pressure be controlled at this time?
     

    A. Use SRV’s to maintain pressure below 1050 psig
    B. Establish RCIC in the pressure control mode
    C. Open the MSIV’s and stabilize pressure using the bypass valves
    D. Open the MSIV’s and rapidly depressurize using the bypass valves
    A. Use SRV’s to maintain pressure below 1050 psig
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  14. Given the following plant conditions on Unit One:
     
    Reactor water level     -25 inches
    Reactor pressure        55 psig
    Vessel Injection           4500 gpm from RHR
     
    In accordance with 0OI-37.4, Reactor Vessel Control Procedure Basis Document, which one of the following identifies the current status of Adequate Core Cooling and the operational implications of these conditions?
     

    A. Adequate Core Cooling is met;
    Clad temperatures are expected to remain between 1500° F and 1800° F. 
     
    B. Adequate Core Cooling is met;
    Clad temperatures are expected to remain < 1500° F 
     
    C. Adequate Core Cooling is NOT met;
    Clad temperatures are expected to exceed 1800° F 
     
    D. Adequate Core Cooling is NOT met;
    Clad temperatures are expected to remain < 1800° F
    B. Adequate Core Cooling is met; Clad temperatures are expected to remain < 1500° F 


    • The conditions listed satisfy the ACC requirements for Steam Cooling with Injection.
    • If reactor water level were to drop below LL4, and RHR injection were maintained, ACC would not be meet.  By maintaining this method of ACC, the core will generate sufficient steam to preclude any clad temperature from exceeding 1500F.
  15. A reactor scram has occurred with the following plant conditions:
     
    Reactor Pressure        1100 psig
    Drywell Pressure        2.5 psig
    EHC Pumps                Tripped
     
    Which one of the following systems is available and allowed for use in accordance with RVCP to stabilize pressure below 1050 psig?
     
    A.    HPCI
    B.   Main Steam Line Drains
    C.    RCIC
    D.   Main Turbine Bypass Valves
    B.   Main Steam Line Drains


    With EHC tripped and the scram the bypass valves will not work; with Hi drywell pressure, the HPCI system will be running and cannot be put in pressure control with an initiation signal present.  RCIC will not be able to be put in pressure control because HPCI has an initiation signal, which closes the reduntant CST return valve.
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  16. During a LOCA with a LOOP, the following plant conditions exist:
     
    2B RHR pump                                    Injecting and operating at its NPSH Limit
    2B CS pump                           Injecting and approaching its NPSH Limits
    All other ECCS Pumps           Unavailable
    Reactor Water Level               2/3 core height and steady
     
    Which one of the following is the consequence of continued RHR operation outside its NPSH limit in accordance with 0OI-37.4, Reactor Vessel Control Procedure Basis Document, and also identifies the required procedure to maintain adequate core cooling in accordance with RVCP?
     

    A. Long term operation is expected to cause RHR pump damage;
    Line up CS to the CST per OP-18, Core Spray System Operating Procedure. 
     
    B. Immediate RHR pump damage is expected to occur;
    Line up Alternate Coolant Injection per 0EOP-01-LEP-01. 
     
    C. Long term operation is expected to cause RHR pump damage;
    Line up Alternate Coolant Injection per 0EOP-01-LEP-01. 
     
    D. Immediate RHR pump damage is expected to occur;
    Line up CS to the CST per OP-18, Core Spray System Operating Procedure.
    C. Long term operation is expected to cause RHR pump damage; Line up Alternate Coolant Injection per 0EOP-01-LEP-01.


    From OI-37.4, Immediate and catastrophic failure is not expected if a pump is operated beyond the NPSH or vortex limit.  The undesirable consequences of uncovering the reactor core could thus outweigh the risk of equipment damage.
  17. Unit One is in an accident condition and is executing RVCP with the following conditions:
     
    Reactor Water Level               -60 inches
    Reactor Pressure                    800 psig
    Reference Leg Temperature  208° F
    Injection sources available      None
     
    Which one of the following identifies the required procedure(s) that is/are required to maintain adequate core cooling?
     

    A. Below the minimum steam cooling water level
    Enter STCP.  Do not perform Emergency Depressurization.

    B. Below the minimum steam cooling water level
    Enter STCP and perform Emergency Depressurization.

    C. Above the minimum steam cooling water level
    Remain in RVCP.  Do not perform Emergency Depressurization.

    D. Above the minimum steam cooling water level
    Remain in RVCP and perform Emergency Depressurization.
    • A. Below the minimum steam cooling water level
    • Enter STCP.  Do not perform Emergency Depressurization.


    Determines that level is less than LL4 and no injection sources, so STCP must be entered.  When leaving RVCP, only the pressure leg is exited, and the level leg is executed concurrently with STCP.
  18. Unit Two (2) has experienced a large break LOCA.  All rods inserted normally and current plant conditions are:
     
    Reactor Water level                -50 inches, steady on the N037’s  (huh?)
    Reactor Pressure                    5 psig
    Core Spray Pump 2A             injecting at 5500 gpm
    Core Spray Pump 2B             Unavailable
    RHR Loop 2A                         injecting (LPCI) at 17,000 gpm
    RHR Loop 2B                         Unavailable
    Suppression Pool Temp         145 degrees, rising slowly
    Drywell Pressure                    5 psig
    Drywell Temperature              330 degrees
     
    Based on these conditions, what operator action is required by EOP-01-RVCP?
     
    A.    Maintain maximum injection to the reactor vessel unless reactor water level can be restored and maintained above TAF.
    B.    Maintain maximum injection to the reactor vessel unless reactor water level can be restored and maintained above LL4.
    C.   Throttle 2A LPCI loop flow to 11,500 gpm, close the heat exchanger bypass valve, operate RHR SW at a minimum flowrate of 8000 gpm.
    D.   Transfer 2A RHR loop to drywell spray with at least 7700 gpm through the heat exchanger, operate RHR SW at a minimum flowrate of 4000 gpm.
    C.   Throttle 2A LPCI loop flow to 11,500 gpm, close the heat exchanger bypass valve, operate RHR SW at a minimum flowrate of 8000 gpm.
  19. Unit Two (2) has experienced a reactor scram and group one isolation.  Plant conditions are as follows, and the SCO is directing recovery actions in accordance with the Reactor scram procedure:
     
    Reactor water level                 195 inches, slowly rising (N004s)
    Reactor pressure                    800 – 1000 psig, controlled by SRVs
    Drywell pressure                     1.0 psig, slowly rising
    Suppression pool temp           94°F, slowly rising
    Suppression pool level            -27.5”, slowly rising
     
    Which of the following conditions would require the crew to enter EOP-01-RVCP and execute it concurrently with the Scram Procedure?
     
    A.   Suppression pool temperature rises to 110°F.
    B.   Suppression pool level rised to -27 inches.
    C.    Drywell pressure rises to 1.5 psig.
    D.    Reactor water level rises to +210 inches.
    A.   Suppression pool temperature rises to 110°F.
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  20. Unit Two was operating at rated power.  DC distribution panel 12A tripped resulting in loss of both Recirc pumps.  Following a manual scram, conditions are:
     
    APRM indications 16%
    Blue scram lights  137 illuminated
    RWM display        124 rods not full in
     
    What method per EOP·01-LEP-02, Alternate Control Rod Insertion, should be
    performed and could be successful?
     
    A.   Place the RPS Test switches to Test.
    B.    Vent the scram air header.
    C.   Insert control rods using RMCS.
    D.    Initiate ARI.
    C.   Insert control rods using RMCS.


    ARI circuitry is powered from DC panel 12Aand is energize to initiate.  The scram blue lights indicate the scram valves are open; therefore, venting the scram air header will not be effective.  Since scram valves are open, the scram pilot solenoids are already de-energized so placing test switches to test would also be ineffective.  RMCS is available to insert rods and is directed by LEP-02.
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  21. During an ATWS on Unit Two, plant conditions are:
     
    Reactor power            Range                         1 IRM
    Control rods                            8 still withdrawn
    RPV water level                      +170 inches
    RPV pressure                         950 psig
    Suppr pool level                      -27 inches
    Suppr pool temp                     164°F
    SLC tank level                                    5%, lowering
     
    Emergency Depressurization is:
     
    A.   required but should be delayed until the remaining rods are inserted.
    B.   required and must be performed immediately.
    C.   required but should be delayed until the SLC tank is empty.
    D.    not required.
    B.   required and must be performed immediately.


    Unsafe region of HCTL plotting reactor pressure vs. suppression pool temp using the -2.5 ft line (-30 inches) which is line immediately below current pool level.  This requires ED per the RC/P leg of EOP-01 (either RVCP or LPC).  ED is not deliberately delayed to achieve more favorable conditions.
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  22. During an ATWS, EOP-01· LPC is being executed.  Plant conditions are:
     
    Reactor power                        8%
    Suppr pool temp         112°F
    RPV water level          +85"
    MSIVs                         Open
    BPVs                           Failed closed
    RPV pressure             800·1000mpsig.controlled by SRVs
    SLC                             Injecting, tank level 48%
     
    Why does LPC direct the operator to continue to lower RP Water level?
    A.   Promote more efficient mixing of boron.
    B.   Reduce the heat input to primary containment.
    C.    Reduce core inlet subcooling.
    D.    Minimize the potential for THI.
    B.   Reduce the heat input to primary containment.

    On high power ATWS (above 2%), level is always deliberately lowered to 2 feet below the feedwater spargers (+90") to place the spargers in the steam space of the downcomer.  This provides steam heating of water injected through the feed spargers (FW/HPCI/RCIC) to reduce core inlet subcooling and minimize possibility of THI (large scale core oscillations).  When level reaches 90" or APRM are downscale, then Table 3 is evaluated to determine if further lowering of level is required to minimize challenges to primary containment.  Since level is +85", SPT is above 110°F, and APRMs are >2%, continued lowering of level is required to reduce heat input to containment.  Once HSBW injected (32%), level is restored to normal band to promote boron mixing

  23. During an ATWS event on Unit Two, SLC initiation is required.  Plant conditions are as
    follows:
    SLC is unavailable
    CRD is unavailable
    RCIC is injecting with a CST suction
    HPCI is injecting with a suppression pool suction
    Which one at the following methods is preferred to inject boron?
     
    A.   RCIC using submersible pump.
    B.   HPCI using submersible pump.
    C.    HPCI via gravity drain.
    D.    RCIC via gravity drain.
    A.   RCIC using submersible pump.


    Submersible pump is preferred over gravity drain provided power is available to pump (approx 25 gpm with pump, approx 8 gpm with gravity drain).  Whichever system is used, the hose  connection is made to the suction line coming from the CST.  If the suction is from the suppression pool there is no flow past the point in the system where the connection is made, so LEP-03 requires a suction from the CST.  RCIC is also preferred due to the lower flow rate.

  24. During an ATWS on Unit One, plant conditions upon entry into EOP-01-LPC are:
     
    Reactor power                        5%
    Reactor water level     +170 inches
    Reactor pressure        948, steady (controlled by EHC)
    SRVs                           All closed
    Drywell pressure         0.5 psig
     
    Injection to the vessel is terminated and prevented as required by EOP-01-LPC.  As RPV level lowers, APRM downscales are received at +125 inches.  EOP-01-LPC directs reactor water level control band no higher than:
     
    A.   +90 inches, and no lower than LL4.
    B.   +125 inches, and no lower than LL4.
    C.    +90 inches, and no lower than TAF.
    D.   +125 inches, and no lower than TAF.
    A.   +90 inches, and no lower than LL4.


    Water level is being deliberately lowered to reduce level 2 feet below the feedwater spargers.  This preheats injected feedwater to reduce core inlet subcooling and minimize potential for large scale core oscillations.  Once APRMs are downscale, the SRO would exit the terminate and prevent step and evaluate Table 3.  With APRMs downscale (and no heat input to primary containment) Table 3 allows establishing a level band.  Since level was not deliberately lowered due to Table 3, LPC directs a level band of +90 to LL4 even though core oscillations would not occur below 2% (basis for exiting terminate and prevent step) it would be preferable to maintain above TAF to maintain adequate core cooling by submergence.

    Suppr pool level                                  -21 inches
               
    Drywell spray:
     

    A. should not be initiated since Reactor Building to torus vacuum breakers may open.
    B. should not be initiated since torus to drywell vacuum breakers are submerged.
    C. should be initiated due to high average drywell temperature.
    D. should be initiated due to high primary containment pressure.
    A. should not be initiated since Reactor Building to torus vacuum breakers may open.


    Drywell spray is directed before drywell temperature reaches 300°F or when suppression chamber pressure reaches 11.5 psig but only if the torus to drywell vacuum breakers are not submerged and in the safe region of DWSIL.  Suppression chamber to drywell vacuum breakers are at +21 inches (not -21 inches).  Since conditions are in the unsafe region of the drywell spray initiation limit, initiation of spray may cause negative pressure and de-inert the drywell by opening Reactor Building to torus vacuum breakers.

  38. While operating at power, the Unit Two RWCU line breaks downstream of the outboard isolation valve.  Both inboard and outboard isolation valves fail to close.  Plant conditions:
     
    Reactor Building 20 ft temperature is 135°F
    Reactor Building 50 ft temperature is 205°F
    South CS Am Flood Level Hi alarm sealed in
    South CS Am Flood Level Hi Hi alarm sealed in
     
    The reactor has been manually scrammed.  What actions are required to reduce the
    leak rate in Secondary Containment, and how do conditions in Secondary
    Containment affect Reactor level instruments N026NB?
     
    A.    Open seven ADS valves.  N026NB cannot be used to determine Reactor water level since Reactor Building 50 It is above 140°F.
    B.    Open seven ADS valves.  N026NB can still be used to determine Reactor water level unless Reactor Building 20 ft exceeds 140°F.
    C.   Commence a cooldown not to exceed 100°F/hour.  N026NB cannot be used to determine Reactor water level since Reactor Building 50 ft is above 140°F.
    D.   Commence a cooldown not to exceed 100°F/hour.  N026NB can still be used to determine Reactor water level unless Reactor Building 20 ft exceeds 140°F.
    C.   Commence a cooldown not to exceed 100°F/hour.  N026NB cannot be used to determine Reactor water level since Reactor Building 50 ft is above 140°F.


    Two areas are above max safe, 50 ft is above max safe for temperature and CS room is above max safe for water level.  Two areas above max safe require emergency depressurization if they are above max safe in the same table.  Since temperature and water level are different tables, ED is not required; a cooldown is since a primary system is discharging and max normals have been exceeded.  N026NB cannot be used when 50 ft (not 20 ft) temperature exceeds 140°F.
  39. Following an event on Unit 2, the following conditions exist:
     
    Reactor Pressure                                            1000 psig

    Which one of the following identifies the required HPCI operation action in accordance with RRCP and also identifies the reason for taking the action?
     

    A. HPCI should be left running
    It is required to be operated by the EOP's

    B. HPCI should be isolated
    It should have isolated on room high temperature

    C. HPCI should be left running
    Steam leak detection was overridden per RVCP

    D. HPCI should be isolated
    To prevent damage to the HPCI pump due to high suppression pool temperatures
    • A. HPCI should be left running
    • It is required to be operated by the EOP's


    RRCP normally has the operators isolate a primary system discharging except if it is needed to maintain adequate core cooling.  With level below top of active fuel and required for EOP's this is the case.  If there was a valid PCIS signal then this should not prevent the operator from making sure that the isolation occurs.
  45. A fuel bundle was dropped in the spent fuel pool and 0AOP-5.0, Radioactive Spills, High Radiation, and Airborne Activity, has been entered.
     
    The following alarms are received:

    Execute RRCP and Exit 0AOP-5.0.
    C.   Secondary Containment has NOT automatically isolated;
    Execute 0AOP-5.0 and RRCP concurrently.
    D.   Secondary Containment has NOT automatically isolated;
    Execute RRCP and Exit 0AOP-5.0.
    • C.   Secondary Containment has NOT automatically isolated;
    • Execute 0AOP-5.0 and RRCP concurrently.
  46. Following a dual unit loss of off-site power, a line break in the Unit Two drywell results in the following plant conditions:
     
    RPV water level          Below TAF
    RPV pressure             150 psig
    RHR Loop A               One pump Injecting @ 10,000 gpm
    RHR Loop B               Pumps tripped
    Core Spray                 Neither available
    SLC Pumps                Injecting boron

    A. LPCI cross-tie.
    B. Demineralized water.
    C. Service water.
    D. Fire protection.
    C. Service water.


    Service water injection is available since RHR loop B pumps are tripped.  Fire protection is not available since pressure is too high.  Demin water not available since pumps are from common buses (de-energized due to dual unit LOOP).  LPCI X-tie cannot be used since RHR Loop A is injecting.

  47. Unit Two was operating at rated power.  DC distribution panel12A tripped resulting in
    loss of both Recirc pumps.  Following a manual scram conditions are:
     
    APRM indications                   16%
    Blue scram lights                    137 illuminated
    RWM display                          124 rods not full in
     
    What method per EOP-Ol-LEP·02.  Alternate Control Rod Insertion, should be
    performed and could be successful?
     
    A.    Vent the scram air header.
    B.   Insert control rods using RMCS.
    C.    Initiate ARI.
    D.   Place the RPS Test switches to Test.
    B.   Insert control rods using RMCS.


    ARI circuitry is powered from DC panel 12A and is energize to initiate.  The scram blue lights indicate the scram valves are open; therefore, venting the scram air header will not be effective.  Since scram valves are open, the scram pilot solenoids are already de-energized so placing test switches to test would also be ineffective.  RMCS is available to insert rods and is directed by LEP-02.

    B.   open direction.  Charging water header pressure indication will decrease.


    Throttling open F034 will provide additional flow to the RPV because the scram inlet valve will be open providing a path from the charging header through the open scram valve and up through the CRDM (same path as cooling water).  Since charging header pressure is sensed upstream of F034 (basically pump discharge), the header indication basically follows the pump curve.  A lower limit is placed on this pressure to prevent pump runout (Note SEP-09 simply directs the operator to throttle the valve and not to throttle open the valve since the valve would have to be throttled closed if chargingheader pressure is too low.)

  49. On Unit Two, the SRO directs the RO to place drywell sprays in service per 0EOP-01-SEP-02, Drywell Spray Procedure.
     
    During the execution of SEP-02, SW-V111, Conv SW to Vital Header Vlv, trips on magnetics and remains in the full closed position.
     
    Which one of the following describes the impact this failure will have on RHR/Drywell Spray system and also identifies the required operator actions in accordance with SEP-02?
     

    A. loss of cooling water to RHR Room Coolers only;
    Open SW-V117, Nuc SW to Vital Header Vlv.

    B. loss of cooling water to RHR Room Coolers only;
    Open SW-V118, Vital Header Crosstie Vlv.

    C. loss of cooling water to RHR Room Coolers and RHR Pump Seal Coolers;
    Open SW-V117, Nuc SW to Vital Header Vlv.

    D. loss of cooling water to RHR Room Coolers and RHR Pump Seal Coolers;
    Open SW-V118, Vital Header Crosstie Vlv.
    C. loss of cooling water to RHR Room Coolers and RHR Pump Seal Coolers; Open SW-V117, Nuc SW to Vital Header Vlv.


    SEP-02 directs supplying cooling water to the vital header by opening either the SW-V111 valve or the SW-V117 valve.  If one is unavailable or trips, the procedure will direct opening the other valve.  Opening the SW-V118 is not an option provided in SEP-02.  The loads supplied by the vital header include the RHR Room Coolers and the RHR Pump Seal Coolers.
  50. During the execution of emergency operating procedures, the operator has restarted Reactor Building HVAC per 0EOP-01-SEP-04, Reactor Building HVAC Restart Procedure.
     
    Which one of the following subsequent conditions would cause the Reactor Building Supply and Exhaust Isolation Dampers to reclose?
     

    A. Reactor water level lowers below LL2.
    B. Drywell pressure rises above 1.7 psig.
    C. PROCESS OFF-GAS VENT PIPE RAD HI-HI alarm is received.
    D. REACTOR BUILDING VENT EXHAUST TEMP HI alarm is received. 
    D. REACTOR BUILDING VENT EXHAUST TEMP HI alarm is received. 


    SEP-04 installs jumpers or operates switches to override all Secondary Containment isolations but temperature
  51. During an ATWS, circuit alterations are performed per EOP-SEP-10, Circuit Alteration Procedure, to prevent a Group I Isolation from occurring.
     
    Which one of the following Group I Isolation signals is defeated by this circuit alteration and how is the alteration physically accomplished? 
     

    A. Low Reactor Water Level;
    Installing jumpers

    B. Low Condenser Vacuum;
    Installing jumpers

    C. Low Reactor Water Level;
    Bypass Switch

    D. Low Condenser Vacuum;
    Bypass Switch
    • A. Low Reactor Water Level;
    • Installing jumpers


    The Gp 1 Isolation signal is defeated in these conditions to prevent a closure of the MSIVs as reactor water level is intentionally lowered to assist in controlling power.  Jumpers must be installed.  There is a bypass switch for the Low condenser vacuum, but it is not in SEP-10.
  52. During an emergency on Unit Two, EOP·01-StCP, Steam Cooling, is entered with an initial pressure of 900 psig.  Plant conditions are now.
     
    RPV water level          -65 inches
    RPV pressure             775 psig, slowly lowering
    SRVs                           All Closed
    Drywell ref leg temp   290°F

    RPV pressure             600 psig
    SRVs                           All closed
    Drywell ref leg temp   185°F
     
    What action is required?
     

    A. Establish a new pressure band of 600 to 700 psig
    B. Maintain a pressure band of 550 to 650 psig with all SRVs closed
    C. Establish a new pressure band of 500 to 600 psig
    D. Emergency depressurize the reactor

  54. During a low reactor water level emergency on Unit One, the Reactor Vessel Control Procedure directs the operator to enter the Steam Cooling Procedure.
     
    Which one of the following describes the reason Steam Cooling Procedure is performed?
     
    The Steam Cooling Procedure utilizes steam cooling heat transfer _________ injection to maximize the time peak clad temperatures in the uncovered portion of the core do not exceed ________ °F.
     
    A.    with
    1500
    B.    with
    1800
    C.   without
    1500
    D.   without
    1800 
    • D.   without
    • 1800 


    Steam Cooling is entered when level drops below the minimum steam cooling reactor water level (LL4) and no injection sources are available.  LL4 calculations are based on peak clad temperature of 1500°F.  Steam cooling is meant to delay emergency depressurization with no injection sources until peak clad temperature reaches 1800°F, the basis for the minimum zero injection reactor water level or LL5.  Note that if entry into steam cooling is required, peak clad temperature has already reached 1500°F by definition of LL4 .

  63. During an accident, Reactor Flooding is in progress.  Plant conditions are:
     
    RPV water level                                  Unknown
    Control rods                                        Fully inserted
    Suppression Chamber press              20 psig
    Suppression Chamber level               -8.1 ft

    Reactor power                        3%
    RPV water level          Below LL4
    RPV pressure             600 psig, lowering
    SRVs                           Only 3 can be opened

    HPCI                           Injection valve will not open
    SLC                             Injecting with two pumps
     
     
    Which of the following methods should be used to assist in depressurization of the reactor per EOP-01-AEDP?

    B.    RWCU blowdown mode.
    C.   Main steam line drains.
    D.   Main condenser via bypass valves.
    C.   Main steam line drains.


    AEDP gives a list of systems to use to rapidly depressurize the reactor.  RWCU blowdown mode is listed but cannot be used (SLC is injecting boron) due to dilution of boron.  HPCI pressure control is listed.  but cannot be used (even though HPCI unavailable for injection) because an initiation signal from low level prevents opening test return valves.  Turbine bypass valves will not open due to the loss of EHC fluid pressure.  Main steam line drains are available and the 1st choice under these conditions.  RWCU recirc mode would also be available but would require defeating Ll2 and SLC isolation interlocks.
