ENS 4784718 April 2012 18:07:00Quad CitiesNRC Region 3Automatic ScramGE-3On April 18, 2012, at 1511 hours (CDT), an automatic scram occurred on high reactor pressure. The pressure increase occurred during post-modification testing on the main generator automatic voltage regulator, which had been upgraded during the recent refueling outage. Following the reactor scram, reactor water level decreased to approximately zero inches, which resulted in automatic Group II and III isolations (Reactor Water Clean Up and Secondary Containment Isolation) as expected. All systems responded properly to the event. The cause of the event is still under investigation. Unit 1 was unaffected by the event and remains at 100% power. This report is being made in accordance with 10CFR50.72(b)(2)(iv)(B) and 10CFR50.72(b)(3)(iv)(A). All Control Rods fully inserted, decay heat is being removed through the bypass steam valves to the main condenser, and the plant remains in a normal shutdown electrical alignment. The high reactor pressure appears to have been caused by a load rejection associated with the main generator voltage regulator testing. The licensee has informed the NRC Resident Inspector.

ENS 4616912 August 2010 08:04:00Quad CitiesNRC Region 3Automatic ScramGE-3While performing a main condenser flow reversal at 0358 (CDT) on August 12, 2010 the Unit 1 reactor received an automatic scram on turbine stop valve closure. Turbine stop valve closure was initiated from a turbine trip on low vacuum. Reactor water level decreased to approximately -3 (inches), which resulted in automatic Group II and III isolations as expected. All systems responded properly to the event. Unit One remains in Mode 3, maintaining reactor pressure with reactor water level in the normal level band. The cause of the event is still under investigation. Unit 2 was unaffected by the event and remains at 100% power. This report is being made in accordance with 10CFR50.72(b)(2)(iv)(B) and 10CFR50.72(b)(3)(iv)(A). All rods fully inserted. Normal feedwater is supplying the reactor with decay heat removal via the turbine bypass valves. No safety relief valves lifted during the transient. The transient was initiated during the condenser flow reversal when one of the flow reversal valves failed to fully reverse the flow. This resulted in inadequate heat transfer to circ water at full power operation causing the condenser vacuum to increase. In addition, the condenser vacuum trip of the turbine appears to have initiated before it was actually required. Overall, the scram was characterized as uncomplicated and all systems functioned as required.
ENS 4319828 February 2007 05:53:00Quad CitiesNRC Region 3Manual ScramGE-3At 0120 hours on February 28, 2007 the Unit 2 Reactor was manually scrammed due to decreasing condenser vacuum. All control rods fully inserted during the scram. Reactor water level decreased to approximately -10", which resulted in automatic Group II and III isolations as expected. All systems responded properly to the event. Unit 2 remains in Mode 3, maintaining reactor pressure, with reactor water level in the normal level band. The cause of this event is still under investigation. Unit 1 was unaffected by the event and remains at 97% power. This report is being made in accordance with 10CFR50.72 (b)(2)(iv)(B) and 10CFR50.72 (b)(3)(iv)(A). The Main Condenser remains in service removing decay heat via the bypass valves. All ECCS equipment is available, if needed. The licensee will inform the State and has informed the NRC Resident Inspector.
ENS 4235622 February 2006 04:51:00Quad CitiesNRC Region 3Automatic ScramGE-3At 0122 hours (CST) on February 22, 2006, the Unit 1 reactor automatically scrammed from 85% power due to a valid turbine-generator load reject signal. The maximum reactor pressure was approximately 1050 PSIG during the event. All control rods inserted to their full-in position. Reactor water level decreased to approximately -10 inches, which resulted in automatic Group 2 and 3 isolations as expected. All systems responded properly to the event. Unit 1 is in Mode 3, maintaining reactor pressure, and reactor water level in the normal level band. An investigation into the Unit 1 scram and load reject is in progress. Unit 2 remains at 85% power. This report is being made in accordance with 10CFR 50.72(b)(2)(iv)(B) and 10 CFR50.72(b)(3)(iv)(A). No SRVs opened during the transient. Post shutdown electrical lineup is normal with the exception of the loss of one offsite power supply.
