A two-point coupled core reactor kinetics model (Baldwin's model) is used to derive formulae which predict the period and damping factor of the xenon oscillations for a thermal reactor core in terms of the xenon and iodine kinetics parameters and the core parameters and coupling coefficient. The damping factor is a measure of the core stability with respect… CONTINUE READING
