In reactor core physics analysis,the research about the pre-processing of Method of Characteristic (MOC) including the generation and storage of characteristic line,the progress of calculation and the choosing of different quadrature set.In addition,doing some simulations,which is based on OpenMOC code and C5G7-MOX benchmark,about different parameters (including the track spacing,azimuthal angles and polar angles) and calculated its impacts on the computational efficiency and accuracy.the simulation results are as following:setting the track spacing as 0.1 cm or the azimuthal angle number as 4,the simulation results have better accuracy. Whether choosing the Leonard’s optimum quadrature set or the Tabuchi-Yamamoto quadrature set,the number of polar angles have tiny impact on accuracy.
