Passive systems are embedded into the nuclear technology safety and design. In relation to safety, accumulators are one example of vital passive systems strictly needed to mitigate consequences of Large Break LOCA. In relation to design, the configurations of both PWR and BWR primary system is based on natural circulation: the mutual positions of core and steam generators in the case of PWR and the elevation of the feed water nozzle in the BWR vessel are determined to ensure (at least) removal of decay heat when active systems noticeably, centrifugal pumps are not available.
