Power distribution measuring system employing gamma detectors outside of nuclear reactor vessel










Image Number 6 for United States Patent #5108694.

A system for measuring the power distribution in a reactor core includes a plurality of gamma detectors disposed outside of the reactor vessel which houses the reactor core. The gamma detectors correspond in number to the number of instrumentation tubes in the fuel assemblies in the reactor core to be sampled. A first plurality of separate flow branches connect the instrumentation tubes with the gamma detectors for routing the flow of coolant from the instrumentation tubes to the gamma detectors so that the gamma detectors can measure the .sup.16 N decay gamma activity in the respective instrumentation tubes of the fuel assemblies. A second plurality of separate flow branches connect a cold leg of the reactor coolant system with the gamma detectors for routing the flow of coolant from the cold leg to the gamma detectors so that the gamma detectors can measure the background gamma activity in the respective instrumentation tubes of the fuel assemblies. Control valves interposed in the first and second pluralities of flow branches are operable to select communication of one or the other of the flows of coolant to the gamma detectors from either the instrumentation tubes or the cold leg.
