The article presents the results of computational modeling of the development of accidents in the containment of NPP with water-water energy reactor (WWER) using the COCOSYS software. The containment of the Balakovo NPP with WWER-1000/V-320 was selected as the object of study. The results of the calculation of environmental parameters in the containment during a beyond design basis accident with a "large" leak from the primary circuit at the following initial events: break of the main

A comparison of the results of calculations with the results obtained using the ANGAR software certified by Rostekhnadzor is performed. The calculation results are in good agreement: emergency scenarios are similar; the maximum deviation from absolute pressure values is less than 10 %. Thus, it was concluded that the analysis of processes occurring in the NPP containment during an accident can be performed using the COCOSYS code. This software can be used to independent safety assessment of NPP required by the IAEA standards.
