The Condenser Performance Test and Thermal Performance Analysis of Variable Conditions in TQNPC
Abstract: Condenser is one of the important auxiliary equipments in nuclear power plants. The thermal efficiency of the entire unit was depended on the condenser performance. Cleanliness factor and condenser corrected pressure are the two most important evaluation indexes. The definition and derivation of these two evaluation indexes were elaborated and clarified in this paper. And the condenser performance at variable conditions was analyzed. The seawater temperature, pipe plugging rate and seawater volume rate effect on unit output was calculated. The calculation method was simple, which can provide reference guidance for similar power plant.
