ENS 494972 November 2013 01:44:00Comanche PeakAutomatic ScramNRC Region 4Westinghouse PWR 4-LoopAt 2147 CDT on 11/1/2013, Unit 2 Reactor tripped during Solid State Protection System Slave Relay Testing. This test utilizes a blocking circuit to verify the operability of the slave relay which trips the Main Turbine and both Main Feedwater pump turbines, on a Hi-Hi Steam Generator level or Safety Injection. No valve actuation is expected to occur. While positioning the Slave Relay switch in a testing lineup, the relay actutated. The Unit 2 Turbine tripped as well as both Main Feedwater Pumps. The Turbine Trip actuated the Reactor Trip since power was above 50%. The trip of both Main Feedwater Pumps started both Motor Driven Auxiliary Feedwater Pumps. The Steam Generator Lo Lo Levels started the Turbine Driven Auxiliary Feed Water Pump. All systems responded as expected. Currently, Unit 2 is being maintained in Hot Standby (Mode 3) in accordance with Integrated Plant Operating Procedure IPO-007B and the Emergency Response Guideline Procedure Network has been exited. Decay Heat is being rejected to the Main Condenser via Steam Dump Valves (Turbine Bypass Valves). The licensee has notified the NRC Resident Inspector.
ENS 4851417 November 2012 12:30:00Comanche PeakAutomatic ScramNRC Region 4Westinghouse PWR 4-LoopAt 1023 CDT Comanche Peak Unit 2 automatically tripped due to steam generator low level. The trip was uncomplicated. All control and shutdown rods fully inserted. Neither emergency diesel generator started. All safety systems functioned as designed. Both motor driven and the turbine driven AFW pumps started as required to restore steam generator level as a result of the trip. The turbine driven AFW pump was returned to auto-start status. The turbine driven AFW pump has been placed in pull-out as per procedure after verifying normal motor driven AFW pump operation. Currently Unit 2 is in Mode 3, (no-load Tave 557 - degrees Fahrenheit) with temperature being maintained with the AFW and steam dumps to the main condenser. Recovery actions will be planned. All electrical busses are powered from offsite power and grid conditions are stable. The initiating event appears to be a sheared instrument air tubing line that feeds the common heater drain pump discharge valve which will fail close resulting in loss of all heater drain flow. The licensee has notified the NRC Resident Inspector.
