PROPOSAL OF ‘FULL-CORE’ VVER-1000 CALCULATION BENCHMARKVáclav Krýsl, Pavel Mikoláš, Daniel Sprinzl, Jiří Švarný (Corresponding author:, Tel: +420 378042828, Fax: +420 378042305) ŠKODA JS a.s., Orlík 266/15, 316 00 Plzeň, Czech RepublicABSTRACTRecently, calculation benchmark ‘Full-Core’ VVER-440 has been introduced in the AER community with positive response 1. Therefore we have decided to prepare a similar benchmark for VVER-1000 geometry. The ‘Full-Core’ benchmark is 2D calculation benchmark again based on the VVER-1000 reactor core cold state geometry with taking into the account the geometry of explicit radial reflector. The main task of this benchmark is again to test the pin by pin power distribution in fuel assemblies that are placed mainly at the VVER- 1000 core periphery. As value of FdH is not directly measured by the core monitoring system a proposal of similar benchmark for macro-codes for VVER-1000 may be useful as well compared to 1. In this contribution we define the ‘Full-Core’ VVER-1000 calculation benchmark and we present the preliminary reference Monte Carlo calculation results.1 V.
