THE NUCLEAR DESIGN OF THE YANKEE CORE

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The nuclear characteristics of the initial core loading for the Yankee Atomic Electric Company power plant are described. These characteristics include core reactivity, control rod and boron worths, and reactivity coefficients. In addition to operating characteristics, parameters for the cold and hot zero power cores are obtained for comparison with startup experiment data. Calculations to determine these characteristics are based on mechanical design specifications. (auth)
