MARINE CNSG-SAFETY ANALYSIS AND DESIGN EVOLUTION
This presentation traces the evolution of the design of a marine nuclear propulsion system. Starting with NS Savannah, the history of the marine reactor program to the present day is described. The Consolidated Nuclear Steam Generator (CNSG) concept is given with specific design features as related to safety requirements and associated safety analyses. Several specific safety analyses are discussed: 1. Loss-of-coolant accident. 2. Loss of propulsion turbine. 3. Loss of normal feedwater. In light of the recent design review of the CNSG by both governmental and industrial groups, certain concept modifications have been made. These modifications are described and related to the current design and licensing activities.
