Kuosheng Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) is a BWR/6 plant in Taiwan. First, this study focuses on the establishment of the TRACE/SNAP model for Kuosheng. To check the system response of the Kuosheng TRACE/SNAP model, the Final Safety Analysis Report (FSAR) and startup tests data are used to assess the TRACE/SNAP model. The TRACE predictions are consistent with the FSAR and startup tests data. This indicates that there is a respectable accuracy in the TRACE/SNAP model of Kuosheng NPP. Second, this study also focuses on the application of the TRACE/SNAP model in the core shroud leakage. The Kuosheng NPP TRACE/SNAP model is used to perform the analysis of core shroud leakage. The TRACE results imply that Kuosheng NPP is in a safe situation when the core shroud leakage transient occurs.
