Temperature coefficient of reactivity

scroll

Describes the reactivity changes occurring when the operating temperature of a reactor changes. The coefficient is negative when a temperature increase reduces the reactivity. Negative temperature coefficients are desirable from the safety point of view, because they help to avoid reactor excursions.
