Detailed analyses are given of failures of nuclear reactor components and systems which indicate that reactor safety is adequately protected by the N.S. Savannah Safety System. Each component or sub-assembly, both nuclear and non-nuclear, which make up the safety system were analyzed to determine its affect on reactor safety. The manner in which the nuclear component or non-nuclear scram system is intended to function and the principles of their operation are described. Also presented is a description of how and when these components and systems are tested. Worst case faults within a nuclear component, a non-nuclear scram system and in the interconnecting wires between components are analyzed and a description of how the faults affect reactor safety is given.
