A new reasonably perfect dynamic mathematic model has been established for condenser used in ship nuclear power plant according to its structural features and operating principle. The model has been solved by the Runge-Kutta method. And an analysis program has been developed for dynamic numerical simulation under steady operation condition, disturbance condition, and accident condition. The dynamic characteristics of condenser has been calculated and analyzed under several kinds of disturbances, and the results of calculation are in good agreement with the theoretical analysis.
