An improved method for thermal power calibration of a low power TRIGA reactor is described using five electrical submersion heaters with a total output of about 20 kW. The temperature increase of the reactor pool water is monitored with six Pt-100 temperature sensors. The results are compared with the initial power calibration 32 years ago. (author)
