The Economic Impact of Reactor Transients
We cannot predict the cost of a transient. In fact, to calculate the actual cost of a transient that has occurred is difficult at best, and probably impossible without computerized records. Also, if we try to estimate the cost of a transient, we will guess wrong, because the simplifying assumptions we have to make will produce idealized but incorrect results.
Transients don’t cause accidents. Accidents cause transients.
