Note

Neutron flux monitoring system is an integral part of the design of a Generation IV sodium cooled fast reactor in view of the strict safety standards. Diverse possibilities for detector systems installation have to be evaluated with respect to practicability and detection parameters. One of the main goals of these detector systems is to monitor change in neutron flux distribution within the core to prevent local melting accident besides permitting reactivity control and power level monitoring. Fission chambers have been identified as the best choice in pool-type sodium cooled fast reactor (SFR) [1] for such purposes.
