At a hearing in the House of Representatives ' energy and commerce committee Wednesday, Democratic Congresswoman Diana DeGette (NRC, is a GE Mark I boiling water reactor with a population of 620,000 -- lost both mains power and back-up generators after an extreme event such as a quake, flood or fire.
Here he investigates a number of open issues about the stability characteristics of natural circulation boiling water reactors (BWRs), including the effects of downscaling the thermal hydraulics of natural circulation BWRs, experiments about the stability of natural circulation BWRs, the results of an experimental parametric study of natural circulation BWRs, experimental and analytical investigations on flashing-induce instabilities in a single channel, and flashing-induced oscillations in parallel channels.
While the industry will continue to rely on traditional Boiling Water Reactors for the near term, the partners would like to progress to new reactor technology by 2030, which poses an additional hurdle for the auto industry as many automakers hope to have hydrogen-fueled vehicles on the market before those spiffy, new tech reactors start up, which means we may have to rely on outdated and inefficient technology to get us started on the hydrogen pathway GM and others have laid out.
