Residual Heat Removal (RHR) System

The residual heat removal (RHR) system is typically a multiple use system with modes of operation for low-pressure injection, shutdown cooling, suppression pool or containment sump cooling, and/or containment spray. Some plants have dedicated systems to accomplish one or more of these modes.

This report shows reliability results for the low-pressure injection mode in response to a large loss of coolant accident (LLOCA) and for the post-trip shutdown-cooling mode of operation.
