This work deals with the updated reference solution of Full-Core VVER-440 PK-3+ benchmark. The solution has been calculated by Serpent code using Monte Carlo method. And results consist of the effective multiplication factor (k-eff), the power distribution on fuel assembly level (Kq) and on the pin by pin level (Kk). The main aim of this calculation is to create a reference solution to test the pin by pin power distribution for different macro-codes. The solution also includes detailed accuracy analysis of the calculation.
