Abstract
In a nuclear reactor, even operating at full power and steady-state conditions, fluctuations are detected in the recording of any process parameter. These fluctuations (also called noise) could be of various origins, such as, turbulence, mechanical vibrations, coolant boiling, etc. The monitoring and complete comprehension of those parameters should thus allow detecting, using existing instrumentation and without introducing any external perturbation to the system, possible anomalies before they have any inadvertent effect on plant safety and availability. In order to reproduce and study the induced neutron noise in a nuclear reactor core, it is compulsory to de...
