Maintenance Training
@Control Rod Drive Mechanism Course

This course explains why it is possible to control the nuclear reactor using control rod reactivity using three kinds of control rod drive (CRD) mechanism in FBR Monju. Trainee learns internal structure, behavior, and mechanism by using models.

- Method for Controlling the Reactor by CRD
- Relation between Reactivity and Prompt Criticality
- Reactivity Control and Reactor Self-Regulation
- Outline of CRD Mechanism
- Mechanism of Fine CRD
- Mechanism of Coarse CRD
- Mechanism of Backup CRD

- Study of Operation Mechanism by Computer Graphic Learning System
- Study of Operation Mechanism with Drive Mechanism Model
- Discussion, and Questions and Answers
