9 Cut-away view of the safety system of the APWR shows the configuration of the components reactor coolant pumps (4) are connected by the main coolant pipes (7) to form loops. A pressurizer (5) is connected to one of the loops. An Advanced Accumulator (6) is connected to every main coolant pipe (7). Safety injection pumps (8) are located outside of the containment vessel. Containment spray/residual heat removal 40 T. Shiraishi pumps (9), heat exchangers (10), and a refueling water storage pit (11) compose the residual heat removal system located outside of the containment vessel.

Component failure rates, occurrence frequencies of transients, modeling of common-mode failures, and so on, are exactly the same among these plants. 14 clearly shows the safety improvement of the ABWR safety design, namely, approximately one order of magnitude reduction in the total core damage 20 M. Fujii et al. Fig. 14 Comparison of core damage frequency values for internal events at full power for Japanese BWRs. (Taken from [3] and used with permission from AESJ) frequency. , loss of feedwater with failure of high-pressure injection systems (TQUX), loss of main condenser with RHR failures and ATWS.

If a loss of feedwater transient occurs, the RCIC starts at the level 2 and the water level goes up. The two HPCFs are never initiated in the transient sequence and this moderates operator stress at the transient. 5 and the two HPCFs are initiated to back up the RCIC. The HPCS of the conventional BWR also had the same function. The HPCS of the conventional BWR is initiated at level 2, namely, simultaneously with the RCIC, which is unnecessarily in a loss of feedwater transient. This results in reducing human error probability (HEP) and enhances safety, although these are not modeled prudently in level 1 PSA.
