There are several proposed advanced reactor systems, which consider the utilization of a steam-driven jet pump (SDJP) as an emergency core cooling system. The steam-driven jet pump is a device without moving parts, in which steam is used as an energy source to pump cold water from a pressure much lower than the steam pressure to a pressure higher than the steam pressure. In this study, the mathematical modeling of the SDJP has been done. An experimental analysis of the high-pressure SDJP has been reported by Cattadori et al. The results of the mathematical modeling of the SDJP have been compared with Cattadori’s experimental results. The comparisons show that the experimental and calculated pressure distributions are in good qualitative agreement. A parametric analysis of the SDJP is ongoing.
