Abstract
Proceedings of the 19th International Scientific Conference on Electric Power Engineering (EPE)

Thermal heat production of spallation target describes the macroscopically current process in the observed object. Monitoring of temperature might reflect these process with some delay caused by heat transfer of its material and mainly its cover parts. Direct measurement of spallation target is usually not possible due to radiation safety. When uranium is used as a target it needs to be sealed (e.g. aluminum). According to all facts, it is known that results of temperature measurement experiments need to be carefully analyzed. The researched method is crucially depended on hardly estimated variables. Due to complicated geometry and changeable outer condition during experiments, the numerical model of Target Assembly QUINTA will be used to simulate all process from heat generation through its transfer to outer part to the temperature distribution. The global comparison of various methods with validation of thermal power production monitoring method by temperature will be discussed in the future paper. This paper is aimed at the description of the researched method, the process of measuring and discussion of data computed by MCNP6.1 simulation.
