ANALYTICAL, NUMERICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL ANALYSIS OF THE RISE OF TEMPERATURE
František Janíček - Justín Murín - Jaroslav Lelák - Zoltán Harsanyi
The first part of this article deals with the computational analysis of
the temperature rise of encased conductors of a
nuclear power plant in the steady state. The generated heat is due to electric
losses in different modes of loading. In the
second part of this article the results of these computations (by analytical and
finite element method) are compared with
the results of an experiment performed on a one-phase model of an encased conductor.
The obtained results are useful in assessing the safety of operation of conductors
in the operating mode and of the possible critical states of the power plant.
