NS SAVANNAH, EVALUATION OF EXISTING SCRAM AND FAST INSERTION CIRCUITS
Existing scram and fast insertion circuits on the N.S. Savannah are analyzed to determine if slower and more reliable circuitry may be used, any existing scram or fast insertion circuits may be eliminated, or any additional protective circuits are required. The validity of the protective scram trips or fast insertions originating both within and externally from the nuclear instrumentation equipment is evaluated. Recommendations are made to improve the ship's reliability of operation wherever possible by simplification or elimination of trip initiations, or by utilization of slower and more reliable trip initiating circuits.
