Description

An Introduction to the Neutron Kinetics of Nuclear Power Reactors introduces the reader to the neutron kinetics of nuclear power reactors. Topics covered include the neutron physics of reactor kinetics, feedback effects, water-moderated reactors, fast reactors, and methods of plant control. The reactor transients following faults are also discussed, along with the use of computers in the study of power reactor kinetics. This book is comprised of eight chapters and begins with an overview of the reactor physics characteristics of a nuclear power reactor and their influence on system design and operation. The use of a mathematical model of the system to study reactor kinetics and control is described. The following chapters explore the neutronic aspects of reactor kinetics; the interaction between neutronic events and the behavior of other physical quantities of the reactor; the influence of feedback effects on neutron kinetics; and the neutron kinetics of water-moderated reactors and fast reactors. The different control schemes for nuclear power reactors are also considered. The final chapter looks at the use of computers to solve the equations of kinetic models for nuclear power reactors. This monograph will be a useful resource for nuclear scientists, physicists, and engineers.
