The following accidents (and transients) are covered with respect to the points mentioned above:

  • Loss of offsite power (transient)
  • Loss-of-coolant accidents (LOCA)
  • Steam generator tube ruptures
  • Feedwater line breaks

  • Inadvertent operation of main steam valves
  • Subcooling transients
  • External events
  • ATWS
  • Test results of the PKL and UPTF test facilities
