Title: Sensitivity of nuclear fuel cycle cost to uncertainties in nuclear data. [PWR]

Abstract

A sensitivity analysis system has been developed in order to evalute the economic implications of uncertainties in nuclear data and related computational methods for light water reactors. The relationship between the fuel cycle cost sensitivity and uncertainties in nuclear data and methods is considered to be separable into two consecutive steps referred to as Path A and Path B. Path B determines the sensitivity of the fuel cycle cost to uncertainties in few-group, cell-averaged, microscopic cross sections. Path A relates the latter to uncertainties in the basic nuclear data and computational methods.
