In this paper, we develop a new method for determining the residual power of used nuclear fuel (UNF). The method is based on the heat transfer analysis of UNF in a C-30 transport container with a KZ-48 compact storage cask. We compare the results achieved by the currently used SCALE 6 software packages based on nuclear physics calculations and the results from our method.
