Objectives:

This course provides the participants with an in-depth understanding of the operational behavior of a plant from the physics standpoint. The participants consolidate their knowledge of reactor physics and use this on concrete examples from plant operation. After completing the course, participants can independently carry out qualitative and predictive estimations.
