Method of operating a nuclear reactor

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #4046624.

A pressurized-water reactor with a core height of at least 3.5 m, is operated by using at least 50 measuring probes which are distributed throughout the core and which feed into a computer. The latter computes in advance a program of operation, by which individual control rods are adjusted, regardless of load changes, over the height of the core in such a manner that local power peaks are avoided.
