The safety systems and the related ancillary facilities are simplified, and volumes of the reactor building are dramatically reduced. The thermal output of the reactor core is 3415 MWt, and the nominal electrical output is 1100 MWe. Instead of the standard four-loops design of the current 1100 MWe class PWR, AP1000 adopts the two-loops design with two large-capacity steam generators and four coolant pumps, and achieves simplification of the equipment [15,16]. 3 Cycle and turbine design optimization Steam turbines for nuclear power plants are generally operated as the base load.
It is necessary to optimize the location where the nickel-based alloy should be applied for these parts according to both technical and economic considerations. 1 [8,9]. As well as the system schematic drawing (Fig. 2), the doublereheat cycle is adopted to achieve the target thermal efficiency of 46% (HHV). 5 inHg, A, respectively). The heat balance should be optimized based on this basic condition to higher thermal-cycle efficiency. It is effective for the efficiency enhancement to increase the final feedwater temperature; however, it should be decided with consideration for the boiler operability.
In the back pressure turbine, an effective heat drop will be small as shown in Fig. 13, therefore, the turbine output will be also small. In the case where large amounts of steam are required by facilities for process steam, high thermal efficiency will be expected, which means the back pressure turbine will give advantage to private power utilities. And as the back pressure turbine consists of fewer turbine stages with simple structure and small exhaust parts, this results in lower equipment costs.
