Analytical scheme of defect formation process was designed, describing temporal dynamics of number of atoms in lattice nodes as well as point and complex defects. According to this scheme, a system of differential equations was made. Analysis of solution of the equation system and experimental data on stored energy (Wigner energy) for industrial graphite reactors allowed to determine the dependence of constant recombination of point defects on irradiation temperature. Calculated and experimental asymptotes of Wigner energy dependence on irradiation time of graphite were compared.
