Simplified dynamics model for subcritical reactor controlled by linear accelerator
Subcritical reactor controlled by linear proton accelerator is considered. Problems of such systems dynamics modeling, taking into account the temperature feedbacks on coolant and fuel are investigated. The obtained dynamics equations describe physical processes with characteristic times differing by orders of magnitude. Due to this feature some physical approximations were introduced to simplify the equations of dynamics based on the point kinetics model. This simplification allows one to use standard methods for numerical integration of ODE.
