The characteristics of dynamic terms in the core overtemperature Delta-T trip function are investigated for various time constants and the effects on the trip setpoint are studied for the uncontrolled RCCA bank withdrawal at power event by using the NLOOP and the PUMA code. Based on this study, a procedure determining the optimal dynamic term is suggested and accordingly the optimum time constants are determined for the KORI 3&4 transition core. It reveals that the vessel average temperature-lead-lag term is the most sensitive in DNB trip setpoint and the optimized time constants are 21 seconds for lead and 4 seconds for lag.
