A change in power for an operating reactor generally alters local parameters in the reactor such as the temperatures of the fuel, moderator, and coolant. A change in any of these local parameters causes a change in reactivity that, in turn, affects reactor operation (a feedback effect). Local parameters help to understand the feedback reactivity components related to the core evolution. For the CANDU reactor, the most important local parameters are the following:
