RFOD_024; RX Mode: Startup; Hot Standby

"At 1643 [CDT], with Unit 2 in Mode 2 during low power physics testing,

the reactor was manually tripped per procedure due to a misaligned control rod.
[ nuclear incompetence ]


The trip was not complex, with all systems responding normally post-trip.

"Operations responded and stabilized the plant.

Decay heat is being removed by discharging steam to the atmosphere using the atmospheric relief valves.

Unit 1 is not affected.

"Due to the Reactor Protection System actuation, this event is being reported as a four-hour,
non-emergency notification per 10 CFR 50.72(b)(2)(iv)(B).
