(Closed) LER 2000-003-00, “Automatic Actuation of Auxiliary Boiler Feedwater Pump 32 During Testing of Emergency Diesel Generator 32 Due to High Resistance in the Contacts of the Reset Switch in the Non-Safety Injection Blackout Logic Defeat Circuitry”
On May 17, 2000, the licensee reported an actuation of the 32 auxiliary boiler feedwater pump (ABFP) during testing of the 32 EDG on April 19, 2000, which was caused by the failure of a safety-related switch in the control room. A high switch contact resistance created an open circuit in the non-SI blackout logic reset switch and prevented a seal-in of the defeat logic. The inspectors performed an in-office review of the LER, and considered the licensee’s actions and report content to satisfy the requirements of 10 CFR 50.73. This item is closed.
