Abstract
SAFETY SYSTEM TEMPERATURE SENSORS IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS ARE SUBJECT TO PERFORMANCE DEGRATION BECAISE PF AGING EFFECTS. A PROGRAM OF LABORATORY TESTING AND IN-SITU TESTINGIS NEEDED TO ENSURE THAT AGING DOES NOT LEAD TO REDUCED SAFETY AND AVAILABILITY. MUCH OF THE TECHNOLOGY NEEDED FOR THIS PROGRAM NOW EXISTS AS ISOLATED METHODS AND PROCEDURES. THESE WILL BE USED IN THIS PROJECT TO PERFORM AN AGING ASSESSMENT ON TEMPERATURE SENSORS OF THE TYPE USED IN COMMERCIAL NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS. IN ADDITION, THE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE IN-SITU TESTING METHODS WILL BE EVALUATED FOR ON-LINE MONITORING OF PERFORMANCE OF THESE SENSENSORS. THE RESULTS OF THIS PROJECT ARE INTENDED TO PROVIDEA REASONABLE INTERVAL FOR PERIODIC TESTING TO ENSURE THAT THAT THE SAFETY LIMITS ARE MET AS THE SENSORS AGE IN THE PROCESS.
