dc.description.abstractNeutron pulses as detected by a BF3 counter located in the center of an AGN-201 reactor were analyzed concerning their time behavior with the objective of ascertaining the feasibility of an on-line determination of the operating state of the reactor by means of characteristics of the time interval probability density function. The reactor was operated in the delayed critical state and the shutdown state. Operating power was on the order of 10 microwatts of less of all tests. ...en
