Frequency Response Testing in Nuclear Reactors presents the optimum testing procedures for measurements in power reactors. This eight-chapter book emphasizes the determination of the system frequency response using nonsinusoidal input perturbations, which are useful since normal power reactor hardware can be used. This text deals first with the mathematical... more...
