COFRENTES NPP SOURCE TERM

Project Description

COFRENTES NPP SOURCE TERM

Calculation of the source term of fuel elements for Cofrentes Nuclear Power Plant

Client: Iberdrola

Year: 2017

Determination of the source term (gamma, neutron and activation of hardware) for a 10×10 fuel element. The source term has been calculated using two different methodologies, both from the SCALE package:

– ORIGEN-ARP

– TRITON + ORIGEN-S

By means of the ORIGEN-ARP methodology, sensitivity studies have been carried out for the presence or not of a control rod and the presence or not of Gadolinium.

By means of the TRITON + ORIGEN-S methodology, sensitivity studies have been carried out for the presence or not of a control rod, axial variation of moderator and density, enrichment variation of U-235 in fuel rods and presence or not of Gadolinium.

The results obtained using both methodologies have been compared.
