The dynamic characteristics of the MSRE were calculated for operation with 235U and 233u fuels. The analysis included calculation of the transient response for reactivity perturbations, frequency response for reactivity perturbations, stability, and sensitivity to parameter variations. The calculations showed that the system dynamic behavior is satisfactory for both fuel loadings.
