We have developed a special Nuclear Material Accountancy (NMA) technique using the Fast Neutron Direct Interrogation (FNDI) method which is one of active neutron techniques. A measurement system, for fuel debris at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, implemented in the simulation was designed as follows. This system has a neutron generator, which can produce neutron yield of 1$$times$$10$$^{6}$$ per pulse in 1 kHz repetition rate. The length of the system is 140 cm, and the outer diameter is 80cm. Sixteen He-3 detectors, 100 cm in length and 2.5 cm in diameter, are installed. Simulations were carried out using the Monte Carlo code MVP developed at JAEA. This work provides simulation results and the applicable range of the FNDI method for fuel debris, using various debris model parameters for example, burn-up composition and heterogeneous materials.
