Abstract

Within the bilateral project between the CEA Cadarache and the Jožef Stefan Institute (JSI) a wide variety of measurements using multiple fission chambers simultaneously inside the reactor core were performed. The fission rate axial profiles were measured at different measuring positions and at different control rod configurations. A relative comparison of calculated fission rates using the MCNP code and the measured fission rates was performed. In general the agreement between the measurements and calculations is good, with deviations within the uncertainties. For better observation and understanding of neutron flux redistributions due to the control rod movement, the neutron flux and fission rate had been tallied through the entire reactor core at different control rod configurations. The optimal detector position with minimum signal variations due to the control rod movement was determined.
