Modified quasi-steady-state method to evaluate the mean power profiles of nuclear excursions in fissile solution

Nakajima, Ken; Yamamoto, Toshihiro; Miyoshi, Yoshinori

A modified quasi-steady-state method has been developed to evaluate the mean power during a nuclear excursion in fissile solution. The original method used the critical equation based on the one-group theory to calculate the reactivity. However, the one-group approximation reduces the calculation accuracy and the geometrical buckling used in the critical equation is not applicable to complex geometries. Then, we have modified the method to use the feedback coefficients of reactivity. Although the modified method requires an external calculation to obtain the feedback coefficients, it is applicable to complex geometries and gives more accurate results than the one-group approximation. Moreover, a new method to calculate the boiling power has been developed. using the experimental data of a supercritical experiment facility, SILENE. Experimental analyses were conducted to validate the new method for supercritical xperiments using CRAC and TRACY. The results showed good agreements with the experiments.
