The gas-liquid two phase flow oscillation in vertical parallel natural circulation channels was performed by the best estimate system computer code Relap5. The effects of symmetry and dissymmetry degree of heated power to flow oscillation and the effects of symmetry and dissymmetry throttling to flow oscillation were researched. The results says that when the twin channels under the same conditions of geometry and boundary, the parameters of the twin channel such as flow are the same. So under these conditions the twin channels can be researched as single channel. It is more possible of flow oscillation for the channels under condition of dissymmetry heating. The use of throttling will make the channels more stable, it is more stable when the throttling coefficient increases. With the implement of dissymmetry throttling, the system is possible for out of phase flow oscillation.
