Based on the best-estimate program RELAP5/MOD4.0, a full-scope thermal-hydraulic model with reference to CPR1000 nuclear power plant is established in this paper, which includes the thermal-hydraulic systems of conventional island as well as the primary nuclear island which has already been researched in traditional safety analysis. Therefore, this paper mainly details the numerical model of the turbine and other parts of the conventional island thermodynamic system. A comparison between the calculated results in steady-state and the actual data of reactor demonstrates a fine consistency, thus verifying the accuracy and reliability of the model. In addition, the steam parameter changes are numerically simulated during the steam turbine’s off-design operating condition such as back pressure variation and the variation trends are the same as the actual situation of nuclear power plants.
