Comparison of neutron kinetic parameters of the subcritical ads experiments Yalina and Yalina Booster
2005 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Subcritical experiments, devoted to investigation of characteristics of accelerator-driven systems, have been constructed at the Joint Institute for Power and Nuclear Research - Sosny in Minsk, Belarus. Different methods for reactivity determination have previously been investigated in the thermal ADS experiment "Yalina", and recently, a coupled fast-thermal facility "Yalina Booster" was launched. This study presents the neutron kinetic characteristics of the Yalina and the new Yalina Booster setups, and points out some important differences. For the Yalina setup, neutron kinetic parameters, such as keff, α, βeff and Λ have been determined by Monte Carlo simulations and they have previously been verified experimentally. For Yalina Booster, these parameters have been estimated by Monte Carlo simulations in a preliminary study, and they will be verified in upcoming experiments.
