Fission product inventories and their releases during postulated single-channel accidents in the CANDU reactor, such as a feeder break, pressure tube rupture, channel flow blockage and end fitting failure, were evaluated for the refurbished Wolsong 1 nuclear power plant using the latest CANDU safety analysis codes, which are called IST (Industrial Standard Toolsets).  The basic methodology applied in the current fuel safety analysis was compared with the methodology used in the case of Wolsong 2/3/4 safety analysis, and the results from both cases were also compared.  According to the analysis results, fission product inventories and releases following the single-channel accidents for a refurbished Wolsong 1 plant were slightly small compared to those of Wolsong 2/3/4 plants.
