This course provides an overview of the reactor and major reactor support systems found in a Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) Power Plant. Major systems associated with the reactor are discussed, such as, the reactor, steam generators, pressurizer, reactor coolant pumps, control rod drives, high pressure injection, residual heat removal system, reactor protection system, borated water system, and the letdown and make-up systems. In addition, the primary balance-of-plant (BOP) systems are discussed in terms of their system interface with the reactor.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
