Abstract [en]

In addition to the pulsed neutron source measurements and the continuous source beam-trip and current-to-flux measurements performed in the YALINA-Booster facility, also presented in this conference, a set of neutron noise measurements has been performed to achieve a complete characterization of the core. The neutron noise measurements have been performed in three different configurations covering a subcriticality range from 0.85 to 0.977. The Rossi-α neutron noise technique has been applied to detector counts from two channels in the thermal part of the core. The Rossi-α results are compared to the experimental prompt neutron decay constants obtained from the pulsed neutron source measurements. A first approach fitting procedure reveals a need of three exponentials to describe the Rossi-α histograms. It has been found that at deep subcriticality, the fundamental mode decay may coincide with or be close to a higher eigenmode, thus making it difficult to determine the prompt neutron decay constant correctly.
