The severe accident of CPR1000 caused by station blackout with the SG safety valve failure is simulated and analyzed using MELCOR code in this work. The CPR1000 power plant severe accident response process and the results with three different assumptions, which are no the seal leakage nor the auxiliary feed water, the seal leakage and auxiliary feed water exist, the seal leakage exist but no auxiliary feed water separately, are analyzed. According to the calculation results, without the seal leakage and auxiliary feed water, pressure vessel would fail at 9576 s. When auxiliary feed water was supplied, pressure vessel’s failure time would delay nearly 30000s. When the seal leakage exists, pressure vessel’s failure time would delay about 50 s. The results are meaningful and significant for comprehending the detailed process of severe accident for CPR1000 nuclear power plant, which is the basic standard for establishing the severe accident management guideline.
