Damaged Bus Bar Identified Potentially Affecting High Pressure Core Spray
This report is being made in accordance with 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(v)(D) for an event or condition that could have prevented fulfillment of a safety function needed to mitigate the consequences of an accident. While troubleshooting an issue with the Unit 1B Diesel Generator Oil Circulating pump, damage of a bus bar was identified at the breaker that supplies the Unit 1B Diesel Generator Auxiliaries. One of the loads fed from this breaker is the Division 3 DC Battery Charger. It has been determined that the degradation of the bus bar may have prevented the Division 3 DC Battery Charger from performing its function which could have prevented the High Pressure Core Spray System (HPCS) from performing its design safety function. Since HPCS is a single train safety system, it has been determined that this failure could potentially affect the safety function of this system, and is reportable as an 8 hour
9.259259e-5 daysnotification. The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified.
