Two subcritical configurations of the zero-power coupled subcritical core YALINA-Booster have been identified through pulsed neutron source measurements. The area ratio and the slope fitting reactivity estimation methods have been utilized as well as the pulsed Rossi-a noise method. The measurements showed that despite the inhomogeneous two-zone core composition a clear single exponential prompt neutron decay was obtained. Spatial spread of the results and converegence issues related to the area ratio method are addressed.
