  • Patent number: 9626033
    Abstract: A screen unit is connected via a first connection to a control unit. The control unit is connected via a second connection to an output unit. The control unit and also the screen unit are jointly supplied with electrical energy via the second connection. Moreover, data for controlling the screen unit are transmitted to the latter via both connections. In this context, the screen unit additionally provides a touch panel, wherein the touch panel is connected only to the control unit.

  • Patent number: 8503600
    Abstract: A fuel element for a nuclear reactor has a fuel rod bundle, at least one spacer with cells defined by at least one web section made from a first material and several guide tubes each running through a cell and axially fixed thereto made from a second material. The first and second materials have differing thermal expansion coefficients. The connection between the guide tube and the spacer is embodied as follows: first and second projections are directly or indirectly fixed to the guide tube. The first projections are disposed in a first axial position and the second projections are arranged at a second axial position and the projections each engage in an opening through the web section to give an axially-acting undercut.

  • Publication number: 20120288051
    Abstract: A control rod for a pressurized-water nuclear reactor contains an absorber rod which is arranged in a casing tube. At least in a lower section, the absorber rod is provided with at least one recess which takes up at most a portion of the circumferential surface of this section. This reduces problems associated with an expansion in the volume of the absorber rod.

  • Patent number: 7822166
    Abstract: A fuel assembly for a boiling water reactor contains a plurality of fuel rods maintained laterally by spacers and surrounded by a fuel assembly case. The outer walls of a spacer are provided with projecting elements that maintain a minimum space between the outer surface of the spacer and the fuel assembly case, the opening span of a spacer being smaller than the internal width of the fuel assembly case. The fuel assembly is characterized in that the spacer is maintained in an off-center position by a force acting laterally thereon such that an external space located between an outer surface of the spacer associated with the outer surface of a central cell and the fuel assembly case is narrower than an internal gap opposite the external space and oriented towards the center or towards a control element disposed at the center.

  • Publication number: 20060285628
    Abstract: A fuel assembly for a pressurized-water nuclear reactor contains a plurality of grid-shaped, square spacers spaced apart from one another. Each of the grid-shaped, square spacers has four edge webs. At least one of the spacers has at least two differently configured edge webs for generating a force which acts from a flowing cooling water on the fuel assembly in a plane of the spacer transversely with respect to an axial direction. A multiplicity of fuel rods extend in the axial direction and are guided in the plurality of grid-shaped, square spacers.

  • Patent number: 7009449
    Abstract: An amplifier arrangement includes a variable-gain signal amplifier. A control block is used to process a control signal in order to set the gain. A trimming unit acts on the control block such that signals which are produced by the control block can be trimmed relative to one another in order to set the gain of the signal amplifier.

  • Patent number: 3997394
    Abstract: For use in forming the core of a pressurized-water reactor, a fuel assembly supporting structure for holding a bundle of interspaced fuel rods, is formed by interspaced end pieces having holes in which the end portions of control rod guide tubes are inserted, fuel rod spacer grids being positioned by these guide tubes between the end pieces. The end pieces are fastened to the end portions of the guide tubes, to integrate the supporting structure, and in the case of at least one of the end pieces, this is done by means which releases that end piece from the guide tubes when the end pieces receive an abnormal thrust force directed towards each other and which would otherwise place the guide tubes under a compressive stress that would cause them to buckle. The spacer grids normally hold the fuel rods interspaced by distances determined by nuclear physics, and buckling of the control rod guide tubes can distort the fuel rod spacer grids with consequent dearrangement of the fuel rod interspacing.
