This report describes the results of the application of the newly developed tools for reactor noise analysis, advanced signal processing and machine learning methodologies to actual plant data. More specifically, the modeling tools developed in WP1 are used to simulate and analyze real plant measurements from the pre-Konvoi 3-loop NPP at Gösgen, a German pre-Konvoi 4-loop reactor, a Hungarian VVER-440 reactor and a Czech VVER-1000 reactor. Subsequently, the techniques developed in WP3 are used to identify the root causes of neutron flux fluctuations in the actual plant data for the reactors presented above. The results are compared with the simulation results corresponding to the selected power plants, based on the hypotheses developed for reactor noise analysis.
