The nuclear data on n+239,240,242,244Pu reactions for the incident energy up to 200 MeV are consistently calculated and evaluated in order to meet the design requirements of Generation-IV reactors and accelerator driven systems. The optical model, the distorted wave Born approximation theory, the Hauser-Feshbach theory, the fission model, the evaporation model, the exciton model and the intranuclear cascade model are used in the calculation, and new experimental data are taken into account. Our data are compared with experimental data and the evaluated data from JENDL-4/HE and TENDL. In addition, the variation tendency of reaction cross sections related to the target mass numbers is obtained, which is very important for the prediction of nuclear data on neutron-actinides reactions because the experimental data are lacking.
