In this work the simplified methodology of correction of the initial enrichment, based on plutonium equivalent of uranium, plutonium, americium, neptunium, curium isotopes on loading is offered. The developed methodology, possessing comprehensible accuracy, allows not only to correct enrichment, but also to lower uncertainty degree at carrying out of system researches of atomic engineering taking into account dynamics of change of fuel isotopic composition at its multiple recycle in fast reactors.
