Project: Optimisation of a realistic operational cycle of an experimental ADS - Application on MYRRHA core management policy

project duration

abstract
Increase of burn up in fuel always leads to a decrease of reactivity in the core. We need tot develop methods that compensate for this effect in an ADS (Accelerator Driven System). Examples are: use of burnable poison, increasing beam current, … It is important to know what the influence of these methods is on the dynamics and safety related aspects of an ADS.
