Abstract

A simple one-group point t kinetics model has been incorporated into the version V1m2j99 of the TRANSURANUS code. Several numerical techniques to solve the very sensitive feedback between temperature and reactivity have been carefully investigated. The model is described in detail and its limitations are discussed. Two sample calculations demonstrate the capabilities of the model for a WWER-440 reactor at begin and end of life at full power conditions.
