A PWR built in the 1970s has a fervent efciency of 32%. The reactor vendor proposes to erect the fervent efciency of the PWR to 34% by modifying the fever and uid ows in the subordinate loop. In Chapter 16, we succeed nd that this is practicable using a alliance of two techniques named refever and regeneration. If the fervent efciency is increased by 2%, and the previous electrical effectiveness output of the introduce was 1000 MWE, what do you rely-on the electrical effectiveness output to be succeeding the required modications are made to the subordinate loop? Is the fervent effectiveness output of the reactor kernel transitional in this process?
