Abstract
In anticipation of the AGN 201 nuclear reactor's operation at a power of 1,000 watts for short periods of time and at 20 watts continuously, a prediction of the behavior during a rapid power rise is obtained from digital computer solutions of the reactor kinetic equations. The experimental and analytical work which provided the coefficients for the equations is outlined. Solutions of the equations indicate the peak power which may be achieved, the time during which 1,000 watts may be obtained, and the temperature rise that results.
