Scientific designs of two next-generation simplified boiling water reactors (SBWRs) namely, a compact modular 200 MWe SBWR and a full-size 1200-MWe SBWR have been developed. The design involved identification of principal design criteria dictated by the safe operation of the reactor, identification of coolant requirements, and the design of the engineered safety and emergency cooling systems based on passive systems. A detailed scaling analysis was performed. The results of the scaling study were used in the performance of the integral tests and data analysis. The scaling analysis identified key thermalhydraulics parameters that govern flow phenomena in SBWRs. The analysis was based on the three-level scaling approach.
