Resumo: Fuel assemblies in a reactor are discharged normally after several fuel cycles. This happens because of the concentration of fissile material existing in the fuel assemblies in the core decreases to values such that it is not more possible to keep the reactor operating producing energy at normal rated power. Therefore, the refueling optimization for a nuclear power plant is in fact a multi-cycle problem. A typical multi-cycle reload optimization depends on several kinds of relationships: one is the relationship between the locations where the fuel assemblies are placed for a specified fuel cycle; another is the relationship between fuel loading patterns for the subsequent fuel cycles. This makes the problem very complex and difficult to solve. Until the moment, all the presented proposals for solution are far from solving the multi-cycle optimization problems in reactor fuel management. In this work, we will show preliminary studies of possible solutions for a typical multi-cycle reload optimization problem trying to consider most important restrictions of a real model. In the initial comparisons, the optimization results will be compared with those obtained by the successive single cycle optimizations.
