Conversion script for homogenized cross sections
In order to be used with deterministic core simulators, the group constant output produced by Serpent has to be converted into appropriate format. Work on an automated conversion script has been started, and the latest version of the SXSFit scirpt is available [on-line]. Currently only the Serpent-ARES code sequence is fully supported, but support for other codes, including PARCS, will be added later on.
The script reads the homogenized group constant data from the [input].coe output files produced using the Automated burnup sequence, and takes advantage of a number of predetermined variables to pass information into the output. The format conversion depends on the code sequence, as described below.
