KATHAR Test Facility for Qualifying Pressurizer Heaters: Long-term behavior under full pressure and temperature conditions with simulated service life

Qualifying newly designed heaters requires simulating service life (electrical loading) at design pressure and temperature. The challenge is to maintain the different electrical loading of individual heaters and simultaneously mimic the full-scale thermodynamic conditions of the nuclear power plant (NPP) for long-duration tests.
