Fuel testing experiments at the High Flux Reactor (HFR) at Petten originate from R&D programmes in support of the following reactor lines: Light Water Reactor (LWR), Liquid Metal Fast Breeder Reactor (LMFBR) and High Temperature Gas-cooled Reactor (HTGR). On-line power measurement and off-line power determination within these experiments is a key requirement. This paper describes the methods used for these measurements and determinations, with details of the various irradiation devices, their calibration and characterisation, and the accuracy achieved.
