The course is focusing on the dynamic features of a nuclear power plant. Examples of the topics that are covered in the course:
(1) nuclear reactor kinetics and dynamics,
(2) point-reactor kinetic and dynamics models,
(3) reactivity feedbacks and reactivity coefficients,
(4) reactor stability – instability mechanisms,
(5) instabilities of two-phase flows.
The objective of the course is to provide a deeper analysis of a nuclear reactor dynamics and stability. After successful completion of the course students will be able to
(a) describe the time-dependent behavior of a nuclear reactor,
(b) formulate a simple numerical model for simulation of reactor dynamics,
(c) formulate, analyze and solve simple problems which are relevant to reactor dynamics and stability,
(d) perform an analysis of stability of a nuclear reactor and nuclear power plant,
(e) reflect on stability margins of a reactor under normal operation
