    Abstract

    A simplified transient model of the Sulfur-Iodine (SI) cycle is coupled to a THERMIX thermal hydraulic model of the Pebble Bed Modular Reactor 268 (PBMR 268) and a point kinetics model. A control volume approach is used in analysis of the chemical plant. A steady state solution of the SI cycle model and THERMIX model is attained. A transient is initiated via reactivity insertion in a simple point kinetics model. Results from a nuclear reactor driven transient are presented, as well as suggestions for future work regarding chemical plant induced transients.
