The “Zero Power” Nuclear Reactor AGN-201 “Costanza” availableat Nuclear Engineering Department of Palermo University is a valuabletool for educational purpose and research. Besides being a useful toolfor training of operators, without the time period limits on start-up andshut-down of the larger reactors, it allows the study of some phenomenaregarding nuclear reactor physics, applied neutronics, neutron dosimetry,nuclear measurements as well as testing of nuclear instrumentation andmethods.The experience of work and the obtained results highlight the simplicity ofAGN-201 reactor control, its intrinsic safety and its overall versatility invarious fields of Nuclear Engineering.
