A major accident took place in a nuclear power plant located at Narora in Northern India. A huge fire with bright yellow - red flame was seen at both the ends of generator. Extensive damage to the power & control cables and bus ducts took place during this accident. The vertical aluminum ducting above the neutral transformer has completely melted The ducts ending near the excitation panels had been shattered. All the panels of AVR, Field Breaker & thyristor cubicles were completely damaged in the fire. Mechanical failures include fatigue fracture of Blades of the turbine. [1]In this project work, we have analyzed the narora fire accident and performed a root cause analysis and suggest the various alterations which can help prevent such accidents in future.
