ENS 562023 November 2022 14:05:00WaterfordNRC Region 4CEThe following information was provided by the licensee via email: This 60-day telephonic notification is being made in lieu of a licensee event report submittal as allowed by 10 CFR 50.73(a)(1). This notification is made pursuant to 10 CFR 50.73(a)(2)(iv)(A) to provide information pertaining to an invalid engineered safety feature actuation signal. On September 6, 2022, at Waterford 3, while performing a plant protection system (PPS) power supply check, technicians observed an abnormally high voltage output. When the technicians opened the PPS bay cabinet door to adjust the voltage, they then observed low voltage indications. The direct cause of this issue is believed to be vibration induced relay chattering or an intermittent connection issue when opening the rear doors of PPS cabinets. This resulted in half the logic being met for the Engineered Safety Feature Actuation Signal (ESFAS) signals to fully actuate. The ESFAS signal opened the following valves: EFW-228A (EFW to SG 1 Primary Isolation), EFW-229A (EFW to SG 1 Backup Isolation), EFW-228B (EFW to SG 2 Primary Isolation) and EFW-229B (EFW to SG 2 Backup Isolation). This was a partial actuation of ESFAS. Affected plant systems functioned successfully. The inadvertent actuation was caused by a spurious signal and was not a valid signal resulting from actual parameter inputs. The 1992 Statements of Consideration define an invalid signal to include spurious signals including jarring of a cabinet door. In accordance with 10 CFR 50.73(a)(1) a telephone notification is being made in lieu of submitting a written licensee event report. The NRC Senior Resident Inspector has been notified. These events did not result in any adverse impact to the health and safety of the public.

ENS 5604415 August 2022 01:18:00Palo VerdeNRC Region 4CEThe following information was provided by the licensee via phone and email: At 1702 MST on August 14, 2022, a start-up transformer de-energized, resulting in a loss of power to the Unit 1 Train B 4.16 kV Class 1E Bus and the Unit 3 Train A 4.16 kV Class 1E Bus. The Unit 1 Train B Emergency Diesel Generator (EDG) and Unit 3 Train A EDG automatically started and energized their respective 4.16 kV Class 1E Buses. As a result of the loss of power on the Unit 1 Train B 4.16 kV Class 1E Bus, the B Auxiliary Feedwater Pump automatically started, as expected. The B Auxiliary Feedwater Pump was not needed for steam generator level control and no auxiliary feedwater valves repositioned. The B Auxiliary Feedwater Pump did not supply feedwater to the steam generators. This event is being reported in accordance with 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(iv)(A) as an event that results in a valid actuation of emergency AC electrical power systems and an auxiliary feedwater system. All systems operated as expected. Per the Emergency Plan, no classification was required due to the event. The 4.16 kV Class 1E Buses in Unit 2 were not affected by the de-energization of the start-up transformer since it was not aligned as normal power for Unit 2. Units 1, 2 and 3 remain in Mode 1 at 100% power. The cause of the start-up transformer being de-energized is under investigation. No plant transient occurred as a result of this failure. The NRC Resident Inspectors have been informed.
ENS 5596325 June 2022 00:44:00WaterfordNRC Region 4CEThe following information was provided by the licensee via email: At 2012 CDT, Waterford 3 Steam Electric Station, Unit 3 was operating at 100 percent power when an automatic reactor trip occurred due to Main Steam Isolation Valve MS-124B going closed unexpectedly. Subsequently, both main feedwater isolation valves shut. Emergency Feedwater (EFW) was automatically actuated. Preliminary evaluation indicates that all plant systems functioned normally after the reactor trip. The unit is currently stable in Mode 3. All control rods fully inserted as expected and all other plant equipment functioned as expected. This was an uncomplicated scram. This event is being reported as a 4-hour non-emergency notification in accordance with 10 CFR 50.72(b)(2)(iv)(B) as an actuation of the reactor protection system (RPS) when the reactor is critical and as an 8-hour non-emergency notification in accordance with 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(iv)(A) as valid actuation of the EFW system. The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified.
ENS 559263 June 2022 20:32:00Palo VerdeNRC Region 4CEThe following information was provided by the licensee via email: The following event description is based on information currently available. If, through subsequent reviews of this event, additional information is identified that is pertinent to this event or alters the information being provided at this time, a follow-up notification will be made via the ENS or under the reporting requirements of 10 CFR 50.73. This telephone notification is being made pursuant to the reporting requirements of 10 CFR 50.73(a)(1) and 10 CFR 50.73(a)(2)(iv)(A) to describe invalid actuations of the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station (PVNGS) Unit 1 B Train Auxiliary Feedwater (AF) system and Essential Spray Pond (ESP) system that occurred while in a refueling outage. On April 11, 2022, at approximately 2045 Mountain Standard Time, an automatic start of the Unit 1 B Train AF and ESP systems occurred during restoration from a surveillance test. The station was conducting a surveillance test during a Unit 1 refueling outage to verify the proper responses of the Engineered Safety Features Actuation Systems to simulated design basis events. The test portion was completed satisfactorily; however, during the restoration portion, the load sequencer inadvertently cycled between Mode 0 and Mode 1 three times in immediate succession. At the time of the system actuations, one of the actuation signals associated with this portion of the test had been reset per procedure. Another actuation signal was still in while restoration steps were ongoing, but the sequencer was not expected to cycle between Modes. The system actuations did not occur as a result of actual plant conditions or parameters and are therefore invalid. The Unit 1 B Train AF and ESP system actuations were complete and the systems started and functioned successfully. For the systems that did not actuate, the reasons are clearly understood as those systems were in an overridden condition due to test configuration. The spurious actuation was not able to be replicated and a direct cause was not identified. There were no adverse impacts to public health and safety nor to plant employees. The NRC Resident Inspectors have been informed.
ENS 558785 May 2022 04:30:00Palo VerdeNRC Region 4CEThe following information was provided by the licensee via email: At 1955 on May 4, 2022, a start-up transformer de-energized, resulting in a loss of power to the Unit 2 Train A 4.16 kV Class 1E Bus and the Unit 3 Train B 4.16 kV Class 1E Bus. The Unit 2 Train A Emergency Diesel Generator (EDG) and Unit 3 Train B EDG automatically started and energized their respective 4.16 kV Class 1E Buses. As a result of the Loss of Power on the Unit 3 Train B 4.16 kV Class 1E Bus, the B Auxiliary Feedwater Pump automatically started, as expected. The B Auxiliary Feedwater Pump was not needed for steam generator level control and no auxiliary feedwater valves repositioned. The B Auxiliary Feedwater Pump did not supply feedwater to the steam generators. This event is being reported in accordance with 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(iv)(A) as an event that results in a valid actuation of emergency AC electrical power systems and an auxiliary feedwater system.

ENS 5543630 August 2021 01:50:00WaterfordNRC Region 4CE

At 1804 CDT on 8/29/2021, Waterford 3 Steam Electric Station (WF3) experienced a Loss of Off Site Power event due to Hurricane Ida (See EN #55435). This event caused an automatic actuation of Emergency Diesel Generators Trains A and B. Both Emergency Diesel Generators started as designed and both are currently operating normally supplying power to their respective Class 1E Safety Busses. This automatic actuation is reportable in accordance with 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(iv)(A). Prior to the loss of offsite power, WF3 was in progress of performing a plant cooldown in accordance with procedural guidance. As part of this cooldown and after entering Mode 4, all Safety Injection Tanks were isolated. As a result of losing offsite power, Reactor Coolant System Temperature increased above 350F which is above the temperature requirements for Mode 4. Safety Injection Tanks are required to be unisolated and OPERABLE in Mode 3. Therefore, with no Safety Injection Tanks OPERABLE, this constituted an event or condition that could have prevented the fulfillment of a safety function and the unit entered Technical Specification 3.0.3. The unit was in Technical Specification 3.0.3 for approximately 43 minutes from 1805 CDT until 1848 CDT when Mode 4 conditions were re-established. This event or condition that could have prevented the fulfillment of a Safety Function is reportable in accordance with 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(v)(D). While continuing to perform the Reactor Coolant System Cooldown and prior to placing Shutdown Cooling Train in service, it became necessary to start one train of Emergency Feedwater. Emergency Feedwater Train A was manually started at 1847 CDT to feed the Steam Generators and was secured at 1947 CDT. Emergency Feedwater Train A started and operated normally during this period. This manual actuation is reportable in accordance with 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(iv)(A). The licensee notified the NRC Resident Inspector.

  • * * UPDATE AT 1549 EDT ON OCTOBER 25, 2021 FROM CHANTEL HATTAWAY TO BRIAN P. SMITH * * *

The purpose of this notification is to revise Event Notification Report (EN) 55436 to include a partial retraction. On August 29, 2021, Waterford Steam Electric Station, Unit 3 (WF3) experienced a loss of offsite power (LOOP) event due to Hurricane Ida. Prior to the LOOP, WF3 had shutdown to Mode 3 (Hot Standby) in anticipation of the LOOP and was performing a plant cooldown in accordance with procedural guidance. When Mode 4 (Hot Shutdown) was achieved, all Safety Injection Tanks (SITs) were isolated as part of the plant cooldown. After the LOOP, Reactor Coolant System (RCS) temperature increased and the Core Exit Thermocouples (CETs) indicated that RCS temperature had exceeded 350 degrees F. Based on the CETs, this was above the temperature requirements for Mode 4 and, as such, WF3 declared entry into Mode 3. The SITs are required to be unisolated and Operable in Mode 3. Since no SITs were Operable at that time, it was determined that this constituted an event or condition that could have prevented the fulfillment of a safety function and included this as part of the EN 55436 report in accordance with 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(v)(D). An engineering evaluation has subsequently been performed to validate whether the RCS temperature excursion following the LOOP actually reached 350 degrees F. As defined in WF3 Technical Specification (TS) Table 1.2, Operational Mode temperatures are a function of RCS average temperature (Tavg), not just the indicated temperature of the CETs. Based on the calculated Tavg using validated temperatures, it was concluded that 350 degrees F was not reached. Thus, WF3 remained in Mode 4 following the LOOP and there was no event or condition that could have prevented the fulfillment of a safety function that was reportable pursuant to 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(v)(D). The remainder of EN 55436 remains correct and unchanged. The licensee notified the NRC Resident Inspector. Notified R4DO (Pick)

ENS 5531116 June 2021 23:41:00PalisadesNRC Region 3CEOn June 16, 2021, at 1550 EDT, Palisades Nuclear Plant was operating in Mode 1 at 100% power. At that time, operations identified an acrid odor in the control room. Investigation revealed that the steam dump control relay had failed, rendering all four atmospheric steam dump valves inoperable. The loss of function of all four atmospheric steam dump valves is reportable in accordance with 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(v)(D) as an event or condition that at the time of discovery could have prevented the fulfillment of the safety function of structures or systems that are needed to mitigate the consequences of an accident. Troubleshooting and replacement of the relay are in progress. The plant remains stable in Mode 1 at 100% power. The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified. Unit 1 is in a 24 hour LCO for Tech Spec 3.7.4.b, atmospheric steam dump valve inoperability. The Unit is in a normal offsite power line-up.

ENS 5528128 May 2021 09:04:00WaterfordNRC Region 4CEThis 60-day telephone notification is being made in accordance with 10 CFR 50.73(a)(1) and 10 CFR 50.73(a)(2)(iv)(A) to provide information pertaining to an invalid Engineered Safety Feature actuation signal. On April 1, 2021, at Waterford 3, while performing a replacement of power supplies on the Plant Protection System, a spurious signal caused a partial actuation of the Emergency Feedwater Actuation Signal. A partial Emergency Feedwater (EFW) logic trip path was met causing the opening of valves EFW-228A (EFW to SG 1 Primary Isolation), EFW-229A (EFW to SG 1 backup isolation), EFW-228B (EFW to SG 2 Primary Isolation), and EFW-229B (EFW to SG2 Backup Isolation). This inadvertent actuation was spurious and was not a valid signal resulting from parameter inputs. The 1992 Statements of Consideration (57 FR 41378) define an invalid signal to include spurious signals. Therefore, this actuation is considered invalid. This event was entered into the Waterford 3 corrective action program for resolution. This event did not result in any adverse impact to the health and safety of the public. The plant responded as expected. In accordance with 10 CFR 50.73(a)(1) a telephone notification is being made in lieu of submitting a written Licensee Event Report.

At 0315 MST on May 19, 2021, Unit 2 reactor automatically tripped during testing of the Plant Protection System. The Reactor Protection System actuated to trip the reactor on High Pressurizer Pressure, although no plant protection setpoints were exceeded. Main Steam Isolation Signal (MSIS), Safety Injection Actuation Signal (SIAS), and Containment Isolation Actuation Signal (CIAS) were received. No injection of water into the Reactor Coolant System occurred. Auxiliary Feedwater Actuation Signals (AFAS) 1 and 2 actuated on low Steam Generator water level post trip as designed. This event is being reported as a reactor protection system and a specified system actuation in accordance with the reporting criteria of 10 CFR 50.72(b)(2)(iv)(B) and 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(iv)(A). Following the reactor trip, all (Control Element Assemblies) CEAs inserted fully into the core. All systems operated as expected. No emergency plan classification was required per the Emergency Plan. Safety related busses remained powered during the event from offsite power and the offsite power grid is stable. Unit 2 is stable and in Mode 3. Steam Generator heat removal is via the class 1 E powered motor driven auxiliary feedwater pump and Atmospheric Dump Valves. The NRC Senior Resident Inspector has been informed.

  • * * UPDATE ON 5/19/21 AT 1351 EDT FROM JASON HILL TO BRIAN P. SMITH * * *

The Unit 2 reactor tripped because of actual High Pressurizer Pressure that occurred as a result of a Main Steam Isolation Signal actuation. At 0337 MST, both trains of Low Pressure and High Pressure Safety Injection (LPSI and HPSI) were made inoperable when the injection valves were overridden and closed in accordance with station procedures. At 0346 MST, in accordance with station procedures, both trains of Containment Spray, LPSI, and HPSI pumps were overridden and stopped, rendering Containment Spray inoperable as well. This represents a condition that would have prevented the fulfillment of a safety function required to mitigate the consequences of an accident per 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(v)(D). Additionally, at the time of the Safety Injection Actuation Signal (0315 MST), both trains of Emergency Diesel Generators actuated as required and both 4160 VAC busses remained energized from off-site power. The NRC Senior Resident Inspector has been informed. Notified R4DO (Young)

  • * * UPDATE ON 7/02/21 AT 1943 EDT FROM YOLANDA GOOD TO JEFFREY WHITED * * *

The inoperability of both trains of Low Pressure and High Pressure Safety Injection (LPSI and HPSI) and both trains of Containment Spray (CS) following the Unit 2 reactor trip has been determined to be an unanalyzed condition per 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(ii)(B). Additionally, inoperability of both trains of HPSI resulted in a reportable condition that could prevent fulfillment of its credited safety function to maintain the reactor in a safe shutdown condition per 10 CFR 50. 72(b)(3)(v)(A). The additional reporting criteria were discovered during review of the event and corresponding safety analyses. The NRC Senior Resident Inspector has been informed. Notified R4DO (Werner)

ENS 5503211 December 2020 17:38:00Palo VerdeNRC Region 4CEOn October 13, 2020, at approximately 02:25 (MST), an automatic start of the Unit 1 'A' Train EDG and SP systems occurred following the restoration of power to the 'A' Train 4160 Volt Class Bus. The station was conducting a surveillance test during a Unit 1 refueling outage to verify the proper responses of the EDG and the Engineered Safety Features Actuation Systems to simulated design basis events. During the test, technicians installed a jumper across incorrect relay points that caused the running Unit 1 'A' Train EDG to trip, resulting in a loss of power to the 'A' Train 4160 Volt Class Bus. Following restoration of normal offsite power to the 'A' Train 4160 Volt Class Bus, the Loss of Power Actuation signal was reset, however, EDG start relay logic was not reset at the EDG Local Panel. This resulted in the Unit 1 'A' Train EDG and SP system actuations with the EDG running unloaded. The system actuations did not occur as a result of valid plant conditions or parameters and are therefore invalid. The Unit 1 'A' Train EDG and SP system actuations were complete and the systems started and functioned successfully. The event was attributed to a human performance error and entered into the corrective action program. There was no adverse impact to public health and safety nor to plant employees. The NRC Resident Inspectors have been informed.

On December 10, 2020 at 1608 CST, Arkansas Nuclear One, Unit 2 (ANO-2) experienced an automatic reactor scram from 100 percent power due to Low Steam Generator Water Level in 2E-24A Steam Generator. Emergency Feedwater actuated automatically due to low water level in the A Steam Generator. Due to inadequate control of the B Main Feedwater Control System, water level in the B Steam generator rose to a level requiring manual trip of the B Main Feedwater pump. Emergency Feedwater responded as designed to feed both steam generators automatically. All other systems responded as designed. All electrical power is being supplied from offsite power and maintaining unit electrical loads as designed. Unit 2 is currently stable in Mode 3 (Hot Standby) maintaining pressure and temperature via Emergency Feedwater and secondary system steaming. There are no indications of a radiological release on either unit as a result of this event. This report satisfies the reporting criteria of both 10 CFR 50.72(b)(2)(iv)(6) for the Reactor Protection System actuation and 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(iv)(A) for the actuation of the Emergency Feedwater System. The Arkansas Nuclear One NRC Senior Resident Inspector has been notified.

  • * * UPDATE FROM JOHN LINDSEY TO DONALD NORWOOD AT 1605 EST ON 12/11/2020 * * *

The purpose of this (report) is to provide an update to NRC Event Number 55028. The cause of the inadequate control of the B Main Feedwater Control System to control B Steam Generator Level was verified to be associated with the failure that led to the A Steam Generator low level condition. After taking action to trip the B Main Feedwater Pump, Emergency Feedwater was manually actuated for the B Steam Generator and the Emergency Feedwater System was verified to maintain proper automatic control of both Steam Generator levels. At the time of the initial event notification, plant temperature and pressure control had been transferred from Emergency Feedwater to Auxiliary Feedwater along with secondary system steaming. The licensee notified the NRC Resident Inspector. Notified R4DO (Kellar).

ENS 550203 December 2020 17:10:00Calvert CliffsNRC Region 1CEAt 0923 EST on December 3, 2020, with Unit 1 in Mode 1 at 100 percent power, an actuation of the Emergency AC Electrical Power System (Emergency Diesel Generator 1A) occurred during normal plant operations. The reason for Emergency Diesel Generator 1A auto start was due to Class 1E 4KV Bus 11 feeder breaker opening. The Emergency Diesel Generator 1A automatically started as designed when the loss of voltage signal on 4KV Bus 11 was received. This event is being reported in accordance with 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(iv)(A) as an event that resulted in a valid actuation of the Emergency AC Electrical Power System.

Following the eight hour 10 CFR 50.72 notification made on 11/03/2020 (EN 54979), further engineering analysis determined that 22 Saltwater subsystem flow remained at levels sufficient to fulfill its safety function based on the conditions existing at the time of the event. Despite flow in 22 Saltwater subsystem falling below the short term (four hour) minimum value for approximately 15 minutes, engineering analysis was able to determine the increased heat removal capacity associated with the lower bay temperatures was sufficient to offset the reduced heat removal capacity associated with the lower 22 Saltwater subsystem flow. This demonstrated that actual heat transfer to the saltwater subsystem was sufficient to ensure all safety functions were fulfilled during the event. Therefore, this event notification is being retracted as it is not reportable pursuant to 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(v)(A), (B) and (D). The NRC Resident has been informed. Notified R1DO (Greives)
