Abstract [en]

This paper describes series of RBMK-1500 reactor transient investigations, performed with CORETRAN code. Aspects of the reactor core neutronic and thermal hydraulic behavior during postulated core transients were analyzed, hi particular, RBMK-1500 transients leading to changes in reactor power and core reactivity were considered. Three reactivity-initiated accident cases were addressed: a) spontaneous control rod bank withdrawal in the central part of the core; b) spontaneous control rod bank withdrawal in core periphery and c) release of one Shortened Absorber Rod from the reactor core. Reactor nominal power operation was used as the reference core state. Analysis was performed using data, obtained from the actual plant database recorded for Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant Unit 2 on 27th January 2001. The CORETRAN calculations were benchmarked against STEPAN code results.
