In the present paper is described how the steady state and transient fuel rod performance code TRANSURANUS can be used for safety analyses of WWER reactors, as an example a rod ejection accident, resulting in Reactivity Initiated Accident (RIA), is analysed.

A simple one-point kinetics model has been incorporated into the version v1m2j99 of the TRANSURANUS code. This simple model is characterised by an effective delayed neutron fraction beta, a neutron generation time lambda (uppercase), an effective decay constant lamba (lowercase) for the delayed neutrons and constant temperature coefficient gamma (uppercase) of the reactivity for fuel and moderator.
