NS SAVANNAH, NUCLEAR CONTROLS AND INSTRUMENTATION CRITERIA AND GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS
Design objectives of a well-integrated set of reactor controls and instrumentation are presented to ensure maximum continuity of propulsion and ship's-service power from the N.S. Savannah reactor. Utilization of the more recent benefits of research and development applicable to these systems emphasizes reliability and human engineering factors. These factors determine mean time between failures, downtime when a failure does occur, and the ease of installation, maintenance, calibration, trouble-shooting, and operations of the equipment. Requirements for an improved system, evaluation of existing design of the reactor controls and instrumentation, and the considerations required for evaluation of these two systems are presented.
