However, the proposed TS changes were based on the TSTF–360 and TSTF–500 changes that were appropriate to the WBN Unit 1 design, because the direct current electrical power distribution system referenced in the model application is significantly different than the system that exists at Watts Bar. Because of this, TVA did not utilize the model application for TSTF–500, but rather provided plant-specific justifications for the related TSTF–500 changes that were proposed in this License Amendment Request. In addition to the TSTF–360 and TSTF– 500 related changes, editorial and clarification changes to TS 3.8.4, 3.8.5, and 3.8.6 were proposed in this request.
