ABSTRACT

The results of a joint feasibility study between the Nuclear Research and consultancy Group (NRG) and Argonne National Laboratory for the LEU conversion of the HFR-Petten reactor in The Netherlands were presented at the 2000 RERTR meeting.  Recently, improved models for cross section generation of the burnable poison (B in the side plates of the HEU core and Cd wires in the LEU core) were created at ANL, together with new diffusion theory models for burnup analyses.  The purpose of this paper is to present the results of diffusion theory and Monte Carlo analyses for the HEU and the selected LEU core using these improved models, and at the same time to show that the results and conclusions reached in the previous paper are still valid.
