- The major safety-related core physics parameters were determined for the five-batch, extended-burnup core. These parameters are similar to those of the standard three-batch core. The major impact on safety appears to be in the area of the steam-line-break accident. The five-batch core has a 9.5% lower net rod worth and 7.5% greater reactivity insertion due to the cooldown which occurs during the accident. Both of these results tend to aggravate the consequences of the steam-line-break accident. Analyses of the internal rod pressure (fission gas release) have been completed for solid fuel pellets using the revised power histories for high burnup fuel rods obtained from FY-78 fuel management calculations.
