CABRI facility upgrade, refurbishment, recommissioning and experimental capacities

Abstract : This paper describes the recent upgrade, the refurbishment, the safety reassessment and therecommissioning of the CABRI facility. It also presents the organization of the commissioningtests and in particular the neutronics and power tests that will be performed in 2015 and2016 in order to demonstrate the ability of the CABRI core to provide complete, appropriateand improved testing conditions and safety margins while controlling the associated uncertaintiesin the best possible way. It finally details the experimental techniques that will beused and the targeted experimental uncertainties.The first divergence of CABRI in the pressurized water loop configuration was achieved inOctober 2015. The neutronics and power commissioning tests of CABRI, including a total ofaround 300 experiments, are under progress.
