CANDU-SCWR is one Generation IV reactor being developed in Canada. Significant amount of efforts has been made to develop CANDU-SCWR. Little work has been done on the dynamic analysis and control design. To observe the dynamic behaviours of CANDU-SCWR, the detailed CANDU-SCWR thermal-hydraulic model is developed. The movable boundary method is adopted for CANDU-SCWR thermal-hydraulic modeling. The benefits of adopting movable boundary are derived from the comparisons with the fixed boundary method. The steady-state results agree well with the design data. The responses of CANDU-SCWR reactor to different disturbances are simulated and analyzed and the results are reasonable in theory. Linear dynamic models are derived from simulation data of CANDU-SCWR thermal-hydraulic model around the design operating point using a system identification technique to facilitate the control system design. The linear dynamic models are validated and it is shown that they can describe the dynamic characteristics of CANDU-SCWR around the design point accurately.
