This paper describes the results of the calculational coupling between ahigh temperature reactor code and a thermal hydraulic code for the energy conversion system. This coupling has been developed in order to come to a more detailed and realistic simulation of the entire HTR system. Combining the two codes reduces the number of assumptions that have to be made related to the boundary conditions of the two separate codes. The models used for the dynamic components of the energy conversion system are described, and the results of the calculation for two operational transients in order to demonstrate the effects of the interaction between reactor core and its energy conversion system are presented. 13 refs.
