Abstract

Mathematical simulation is used to show that a reactor burning oxide fuel can be controlled in a self-adjustable neutron–nuclear regime, making it possible actually to operate without excess reactivity (ρ/β <0.1). Waste-uranium carbide is used for control. When control is switched off, an appreciable power perturbation appears in apporximately 1 day.
