WWER radial reflector modeling by diffusion codes


WWER radial reflector modeling by diffusion codes

Petkov, T.; Mittag, S.

The two commonly used approaches to describe the WWER radial reflectors in diffusion codes, by albedos on the core-reflector boundary and by a ring of diffusive assembly size nodes, are discussed. The advantages and disadvantages of the first approach are presented first, then the Koebke's equivalence theory is outlined and its implementation for the WWER radial reflectors is discussed. Results for the WWER-1000 reactor are presented. Then the boundary conditions on the outer reflector boundary are discussed. The possibility to divide the library into fuel assembly and reflector parts and to generate each library by a separate code package is discussed.
