A distributed-parameter model is developed for a pressurized water reactor (PWR) in order to analyze the frequency behavior of the nuclear reactor. The model is built based upon the partial differential equations describing heat transfer and fluid flow in the reactor core. As a comparison, a multi-lump reactor core model with five fuel lumps and ten coolant lumps using Mann's model is employed. The derivations of the different transfer functions in both models are also presented with emphasis on the distributed parameter.
