Performance characteristics of the N.S. Savannah control rod drive mechanism are evaluated. The results of tests performed in determining these characteristics are described, including graphs, data sheets, and photographs. Appendices contain detailed specifications for: (1) a test program to establish the ability of the control rod drive system to operate properly in all respects during its duty cycle, and to determine the system operating limits, and other engineering necessary for evaluation of this system; (2) a test to measure the temperature at designated positions, under different conditions; and (3) a test program to establish the ability of the control rod drive system to meet specified requirements.
