This study provides the simulation results using MARS-KS/CANDU code for the Large Break LOCA of CANDU type reactor. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the capability of MARS-KS/CANDU for simulating the actual plants (Wolsong 2/3/4). The steady state and the transient analysis results were provided. After the sensitivity study depend on break size, the case that 35% of the inlet header known as the accident that has the most limiting effect on the temperature of the fuel sheath was calculated. In order to evaluate the results, the results were compared with those of CATHENA simulation.
