class
openmc.deplete.
SICELIIntegrator
(operator, timesteps, power=None, power_density=None, n_steps=10)[source]¶ Deplete using the SICE/LI CFQ4 algorithm.
Implements the stochastic implicit CE/LI predictorcorrector algorithm using the fourth order commutatorfree integrator.
Detailed algorithm can be found in section 3.2 in Colin Josey’s thesis.
Parameters:  operator (openmc.deplete.TransportOperator) – The operator object to simulate on.
 timesteps (iterable of float) – Array of timesteps in units of [s]. Note that values are not cumulative.
 power (float or iterable of float, optional) – Power of the reactor in [W]. A single value indicates that
the power is constant over all timesteps. An iterable
indicates potentially different power levels for each timestep.
For a 2D problem, the power can be given in [W/cm] as long
as the “volume” assigned to a depletion material is actually
an area in [cm^2]. Either
power
orpower_density
must be specified.  power_density (float or iterable of float, optional) – Power density of the reactor in [W/gHM]. It is multiplied by
initial heavy metal inventory to get total power if
power
is not speficied.  n_steps (int, optional) – Number of stochastic iterations per depletion interval. Must be greater than zero. Default : 10
Variables:  operator (openmc.deplete.TransportOperator) – Operator to perform transport simulations
 chain (openmc.deplete.Chain) – Depletion chain
 timesteps (iterable of float) – Size of each depletion interval in [s]
 power (iterable of float) – Power of the reactor in [W] for each interval in
timesteps
 n_steps (int) – Number of stochastic iterations per depletion interval

__call__
(bos_conc, bos_rates, dt, power, _i=None)[source]¶ Perform the integration across one time step
Parameters:  bos_conc (numpy.ndarray) – Initial bos_concentrations for all nuclides in [atom]
 bos_rates (openmc.deplete.ReactionRates) – Reaction rates from operator
 dt (float) – Time in [s] for the entire depletion interval
 power (float) – Power of the system in [W]
 _i (int, optional) – Current depletion step index. Not used
Returns:  proc_time (float) – Time spent in CRAM routines for all materials in [s]
 bos_conc_list (list of numpy.ndarray) – Concentrations at each of the intermediate points with the final bos_concentration as the last element
 op_results (list of openmc.deplete.OperatorResult) – Eigenvalue and reaction rates from intermediate transport simulations
