Abstract The use of the decay ratio as a practical stability measure of boiling water reactors is questioned. Especially, it is shown that a reactor working at an operating point with a small decay ratio can be closer to instability than a reactor with a larger decay ratio. Consequently, a reconsideration of the practical use of the decay ratio is advocated.
