  • Reliability analysis of a modern power supply under nuclear radiation effects

    The nuclear radiation damage due to displacement and ionization effects on power devices is well known. This affects the performance of the systems, which use these power devices. This paper presents a study on the performance degradation of a modern power supply unit operating in a nuclear environment. In this paper, a buck-boost converter has been considered which is used for feeding DC power to various electronic systems, DC drives, etc. in nuclear power plant. The power devices, which constitute the buck-boost converter, were irradiated with gamma rays and the basic parameters were monitored to determine the deviations. The experimental results have been utilized to find out the probability of failure of each device of the power converter and subsequently the reliability evaluation of the buck-boost converter has been carried out using fault tree analysis. The experimental database has been used to mathematically model the gamma radiation effects, which helps in predicting the life of electronic systems in a nuclear environment. The polynomials derived are very useful for enhancing the availability of modern power supply system working in a nuclear environment. The buck-boost converter has been simulated using PSpice to analyse the overall effect of gamma radiation damage on the modern power supply system by feeding experimental results of individual power devices into the simulation. Detail experimental and analysis results are presented.

  • Issues related to nuclear radiation effects on semiconductor devices

    The nuclear radiation damage due to displacement and ionisation effects has been observed on semiconductor diodes and transistors. The devices were irradiated with gamma rays of integrated dose value of 100, 300 and 500 krads with a dose rate of 100 krads/hour. A decrease in the breakdown voltage capacity and increase in leakage current were observed for the rectifier diodes while the common emitter current gain of power transistors reduced to a low value and was found to be highly sensitive to the low dose rate values. Controlled annealing shows improvement in the post-radiation integrity of the lattice through recombination. Utilising the experimental database, the mathematical modelling of nuclear effects can predict life of the devices. Radiation hard power electronic system design approach is discussed.

  • Signal Corps Studies of Nuclear Radiation Effects on Electronic Components and Materials

An historical account of USASRDL participation in earlier weapons tests is presented along with more recent efforts toward the evaluation of component operation during a burst of nuclear radiation using various pulsed reactor facilities. The radiation effects on some present-day components is briefly described, and possible directions of future efforts to develop radiation-resistant components and equipment are proposed.

  • Temperature Stress and Nuclear Radiation Effects on Electromagnetic Shielding

    Military specifications, such as MIL-STD-810 and similar environmental specifications for airborne electronic equipments, delineate the extremes within which such equipment must function properly. Emphasis is usually on physical parameters such as vibration, shock, heat, cold, salt-spray, and corrosive atmospheres. Limits have usually been dictated by practical considerations of terrestrial, operational, and environmental conditions. Great strides have been taken toward lunar and interplanetary exploration, but the possible effects of known adverse environments upon the electromagnetic shielding effectiveness of electronic equipment enclosures are relatively unknown. Prior to conducting this study, opinions were solicited as to whether physical environments would affect the electromagnetic shielding characteristics of metal equipment enclosures. The consensus of educated guesses was that there would be no effect on electrical characteristics of the enclosures, provided of course that no physical damage accrued to the enclosures. The authors are not aware of any literature which purports to be a study or record of the effects of such environmental extremes upon the electromagnetic shielding effectiveness of electronic equipment enclosures. The effects of repeated temperature shock and of exposure to nuclear radiation on the shielding effectiveness S of enclosures fabricated from several common metals, incorporating several types of seam construction, are explored. This investigation results from a Boeing-sponsored companion study to work performed for the U. S. Army Electronics Command. It in no way purports to supply all the answers, but is presented in the hope that it may arouse sufficient interest so that unresolved questions will be thoroughly investigated.

  • Nuclear radiation effects in quartz crystals

    Review is made of information concerning the ability of current designs of quartz crysta. units to operate in nuclear environments generated by nuclear weapons and propulsion systems. Exposure of military-type crystal units to steady-state nuclear radiation has indicated that most of the units are appreciably affected by integrated neutron doses of 10<sup>17</sup>. Differences in results on the same crystals are attributed to differences in processing techniques, fabrication materials and mounting. The large thermal neutron component of the integrated dose is indicated to be primarily responsible for the large number of failures in the steady state reactor. Similar crystal units exposed to gamma photons in the Cobalt-60 facility are shown to be little affected by such radiation. Information is presented to show that military type crystal units are not nermanently affected by a pulsed nuclear radiation dose similer to that specified in the pertinent military standard. The need for information on the transient effects induced by such exposure is stressed. The various radiation environments encountered by satellites and the ability of quartz crystal units to withstand such environments are discussed briefly.

  • Simulation and Verification of Transient Nuclear Radiation Effects on Semiconductor Electronics

    This paper demonstrates a technique of modeling semiconductor devices with a comrpatible circuit analysis program using an IBM 7094 digital computer and an S - C - 4020 for CRT display. The models and program contain means of simulating the effect of an ionizing radiation environment. Both modeling and programming are facilitated by the use of a general-purpose compiler and solver termed TRAC (Transient Radiation Analysis by Computer). Comparison between TRAC simulation and experimental test results demonstrate close agreement at the indicated radiation levels. Methods for determining the semiconductor device parameter values from test data are illustrated. Likewise, TRAC program capability is tabulated with a circuit example illustrating application of the technique. A brief description of "Equation Writing Capability" is included with an example of input data required for this option.

  • Tokamak Fusion Generators for Nuclear Radiation Effects Testing

    The potential utilization of near-term tokamak test reactors for nuclear radiation damage evaluation and hardening programs is examined. Physical layouts of the irradiation modules and methods of neutron spectrum tailoring are described. Tokamak fusion generators provide much larger test volume and can give more faithful spectral simulations of thermonuclear threat environments than do accelerator-driven point neutron sources or pulsed fast- fission reactors. However, the tokamak is basically a long-pulse source producing relatively low neutron dose rates (~105 rads/s) that limit its application to damage programs with devices and subsystems that are sensitive to integrated radiation dose rather than dose rate.
