Similar to conventional nuclear power plant, condensate water subcooling is a common problem in secondary coolant of floating nuclear power plant, which is caused by many reasons. In this article, RELAP5 is used to simulate the phenomenon of condensate water subcooling caused by noncondensable gas. The influence of noncondensable gas to condenser pressure, subcooling temperature, heat transfer rate, terminal temperature difference, cooling water temperature rise is presented. The results obtained through this study have shown that the model with non-condensable gas in steam can simulate condensate water subcooling, and reveal the discipline of condenser heat transfer characteristics as a function of noncondensable gas content.
