An Innovative Hybrid Loop-Pool SFR Design and Safety Analysis Methods: Today and Tomorrow

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Investment in commercial sodium cooled fast reactor (SFR) power plants will become possible only if SFRs achieve economic competitiveness as compared to light water reactors and other Generation IV reactors. Toward that end, we have launched efforts to improve the economics and safety of SFRs from the thermal design and safety analyses perspectives at Idaho National Laboratory. From the thermal design perspective, an innovative hybrid loop-pool SFR design has been proposed. This design takes advantage of the inherent safety of a pool design and the compactness of a loop design to further improve economics and safety. From the safety analyses ... continued below

From the safety analyses perspective, we have initiated an effort to develop a high fidelity reactor system safety code.
