|ENS 54072||Turkey Point||18 May 2019 15:08:00||Manual Reactor Trip Due Grid Disturbance||This is a non-emergency notification to the NRC Operations Center in accordance with 10 CFR 50.72(b)(2)(iv)(B) for a valid actuation of the Reactor Protection System (RPS) (four hour notification) and 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(iv)(A) for a valid Engineered Safeguards (ESF) actuation (eight hour notification) due to Auxiliary Feedwater (AFW) initiation. Unit 3 manual reactor trip following grid disturbance. Following the grid disturbance, a manual reactor trip was initiated due to lowering steam generator water levels. All control rods fully inserted. AFW started as expected. All other systems responded as expected. Current reactor temperature is 547 degrees F. Current reactor pressure is 2235 psig. Decay heat is being removed through the Atmospheric Steam Dumps (no known primary to secondary Reactor Coolant System leakage exists). The unit is in a normal post-trip electrical lineup. There was no affect on Unit 4. The cause of the grid disturbance is under investigation. The licensee notified the NRC Resident Inspector.|

On Friday, May 17, 2019 at 2303 (EDT), with the reactor at 70 (percent) core thermal power, Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station initiated a manual reactor scram due to degrading condenser vacuum as a result of the trip of Seawater Pump B. All control rods inserted as designed. The plant is in hot shutdown. Plant safety systems responded as designed. Pressure is being controlled using the Mechanical Hydraulic Control System and Main Condenser. Reactor water level is being maintained with the feedwater and condensate system. During the manual reactor scram, the plant experienced the following isolation signals as designed:
"Group 2 Isolation: Miscellaneous containment isolation valves Group 6 Isolation: Reactor Water Clean-up Reactor Building Isolation Actuation
Due to the Reactor Protection System actuation while critical, this event is being reported as a four-hour, non-emergency notification in accordance with 10 CFR 50.72(b)(2)(iv)(B), 'any event that results in actuation of the reactor protection system (RPS) when the reactor is critical...' This notification is also being made in accordance with 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(iv)(A), 'Any event or condition that results in valid actuation of any of the systems listed in paragraph (b)(3)(iv)(B) of this section...' (B)(2) 'General containment isolation signals affecting containment isolation valves in more than one system or multiple main steam isolation valves (MSIVs).' This event has no impact on the health and safety of the public or plant personnel. The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified. The licensee will notify the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency."

|ENS 54062||Grand Gulf||12 May 2019 15:39:00||Reactor Scram Due to Partial Loss of Service Water|
At 1039 CDT the reactor was manually (scrammed) due to a partial loss of plant service water. The loss of plant service water was caused by a loss of (balance of plant) BOP transformer 23. Reactor power was reduced in an attempt to restore pressure to plant service water. Reactor level is being maintained with condensate and feedwater. Reactor pressure is being maintained with bypass control valves. Standby Service Water A and B were manually initiated to supply cooling to Control Room A/C and (Engineered Safety Feature) ESF switchgear room coolers. The cause is under investigation. The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified. This event is being reported under 10 CFR 50.72(b)(2)(iv)(B) as any event or condition that results in actuation of the Reactor Protection System (RPS), when the reactor is critical and also reported under 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(iv)(A), as any event or condition that results in actuation of RPS and Standby Service Water. The plant is currently in a normal electrical lineup.
This is an update to the original notification. The Drywell and Containment exceeded the technical specification (TS) temperature limits of 135 degrees F (TS Limiting Condition of Operation (LCO) 22.214.171.124) and 95 degrees F (TS LCO 126.96.36.199), respectively. An 8-hour notification is being added for any 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 control the release of radioactive material per 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(v)(C). Notified R4DO (Alexander).
|ENS 54054||Dresden||9 May 2019 08:48:00||Automatic Reactor Scram Due to Turbine Trip||On May 9, 2019 at 0348 CDT, an automatic scram was received on Unit 2 following a turbine trip. All rods inserted to their full-in positions. All Group 2 and Group 3 automatic isolations actuated as expected. Systems operated as expected. Reactor vessel inventory and pressure are being maintained in normal control bands. This event is being reported pursuant to 10 CFR 50.72(b)(2)(iv)(B), any event or condition that results in actuation of the reactor protection system (RPS) when the reactor is critical. The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified. Decay heat is being removed using the steam bypass valves to the condenser and the safety relief valves did not lift as a result of the trip.|
|ENS 54047||McGuire||3 May 2019 19:54:00||Automatic Reactor Trip on Over Temperature Delta Temperature||At 1554 EDT on 5/3/19, with Unit 1 in Mode 1 at approximately 100 percent power, the reactor automatically tripped on Over Temperature Delta Temperature following a pressure transient in the Reactor Coolant System. The trip was uncomplicated with all systems responding normally post trip. Operations manually started the motor driven auxiliary feedwater pumps and has stabilized the plant. Decay heat is being removed by the condenser. Unit 2 is not affected. Due to Reactor Protection System actuation while critical and actuation of the motor driven auxiliary feedwater pumps, this event is being reported as a four-hour, non-emergency notification per 10 CFR 50.72(b)(2)(iv)(B) and an 8-hour non-emergency notification per 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(iv)(A). There was no impact on the health and safety of the public or plant personnel. The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified. Unit 1 is in a normal electrical lineup. Prior to the automatic trip, the backup pressurizer heaters were in service as is normal during power ascension. The pressure transient started when the backup heaters were in the process of being removed from service. The licensee notified the NRC Resident Inspector.|
