In the future, the third generation of nuclear power reactor AP1000 may become the main type in China. The results of analyzing the design idea and the power operation characteristics of AP1000 show that AP1000 nuclear generating unit possesses satisfied load regulation characteristics, so it can be participated in peak load regulation of power grid. On the basis of mastering physical characteristics of core reactivity of AP1000 and its coupling features with neutron-flux, a core simulation… Expand
