Abstract

The paper contains a description of the MYRRHA core management tool currently under development at SCK-CEN and some applications of this tool for solving MYRRHA in-core fuel management optimization problems. The method used for the optimization is Genetic Algorithm. The optimization algorithm is described in detail in the paper. Results obtained for the solved illustrative optimization problem are discussed.
