UpFlow Conversion (UFC) was implemented in NPP Krško during the last outage in order to reduce the pressure differential across baffle plates and the possibility of the fuel damage caused by flow induced vibration. The paper describes the coupled code calculation (RELAP5 and PARCS) of MSLB accident at power for pre and post-UFC configuration of reactor vessel. In the calculation, the split model of the reactor vessel was used to better describe asymmetric conditions in loops. It has been demonstrated that the basic parameters (pressure, temperatures) stayed unchanged and there was little change in the flow rates except in baffle-barrel region of the vessel where both flow direction and amount of flow were changed.
