# Difference between revisions of "Basic Statistical Analysis of LWR Pin Power Data"

This article details the basic mathematical formulas used to statistically compare pin power data sets from a reference and an alternate LWR.

Due to the migration of our articles from MediaWiki to Markdown, the formulas are not showing up properly. Unfortunately, Markdown does not have a lot of support for mathematical characters. We will soon be migrating back to MediaWiki pages, at which point this article will be back to normal.

## Pin Power Dataset Representation

First, let's view the pin power dataset of each LWR as a 4D matrix P(i, j, k, l) where

Variable Represents
i pin row
j pin column
k axial level
l assembly number

In order to compare two of these pin power datasets, we shall define the following 4D pin power datasets:

Variable Represents
A reference power data set
B alternate power data set
C power difference data set

where

_C = B - A _ (a basic power difference)

or

_C = (B - A) / A _ (a relative power difference)

In addition, each element in C can be weighted by a 4D matrix W.
