Please lay out the physical principles on an engineers level! Stating something isn't simply possible because it simply is a newer design isn't engineer worthy. (it's the why'se and becauses that count)
And actually, argumentation that fails to adress the Y's mostly stinks.
1.) a backup generator, when not running hot but been put in "warm" start condition, will NOT fail to start ?
- it has a chance of not starting
- it has a chance of producing an /internal/ grid fault when being connected to the internal grid
Yes, even when a backup generator is not flooded it can fail. Ohh yes, and a backup generator chances of failing are even better when subjected to earth quakes.
And another poster corrected you on wave height.
Also the coast line in Fujian "looks" a bit shallow don't you think ?
the advertising anouncement you posted does not state much of the information you "suggested".
Especially the term "much more adequate fashion"
meaning it's conventional but has more fail safes built into.
Again please don't try to suppress physics.
You need to actively pump coolant into the reactor and in this case it means sustain the operation of all three cooling loops.
If one loop fails you have safety margin, increasing the energy amount in one cooling loop == make it hotter but this gives only time to fix something.
And this means pumping pumping and pumping and then vaporizing water.
There is no hint given at certain intercoolants like salt or low temp. melting metall, or even a free convection style cooling of any kind.
"The ACP1000 is a pressurized reactor in a large dry containment, that can contain a molten core without overpressurizing the containment."
Please don't try to alter physics, if your inner cooling loop is broken - which is - if the link is correct on that detail - water, can separate Hydrogen from Oxygene your reactor can go boom.
Heat something up, it expands, encase it and you have increased pressure.
The only solution would be to "vent" which will vent radioactivity into the air. - only true for inner most loop.
And as you stated yourself it's a pressureized reactor - here comes the Y for the pressure, increase the boiling point of water, because when water boils it looses it's "wanted" moderating function inside the reactor, and it would drastically increase it's volume = in a containment building up pressure.
