GT-MHR Commercialization Study Technical Progress and Cost Management Report: June 2003

Description: A271 GT-MHR COMMERCIALZATION STUDY TECHNICAL PROGRESS AND COST MANAGEMENT REPORT FOR THE PERIOD JUNE 1 THROUGH JUNE 30, 2003. Petten was provided with irradiation dimensional change data for both fuel compacts and H-451 graphite for design of the graphite sleeves that hold the fuel compacts to be irradiated in HFR-EU2. The Fuel Sample Product Specification for the Fuel Performance Irradiation Test Capsule MHR-2 was completed and approved. A Work Breakdown Structure was prepared for the development and qualification of advanced coated-particle fuels capable of meeting anticipated fuel performance requirements and work was initiated on preparation of schedules and a cost estimates for the test matrices.

GT-MHR Commercialization Study Technical Progress and Cost Management Report: May 2003

Description: A271 GT-MHR COMMERCIALZATION STUDY TECHNICAL PROGRESS AND COST MANAGEMENT REPORT FOR THE PERIOD MAY 1 THROUGH MAY 31, 2003. Petten advised GA the start of the HFR-EU2 irradiation is being delayed until late July 2004. HFR-EU1 (pebble fuel) is also delayed until February/March 2004. The reason for the delays was implementation of new financial regulations at Petten that delayed the contracts for capsule fabrication. Review of the MHR-2 Fuel Product Specification was completed. Revision of the specification to incorporate the review results is in progress. Detailed test matrices have been drafted for capsule irradiation tests and for post-irradiation heating tests proposed for development and qualification of advanced coated-particle fuels capable of meeting anticipated VHTR fuel performance requirements.

GT-MHR Commercialization Study Technical Progress and Cost Management Report: September 2003

Description: OAK B202 Efforts are in process with GA Contracts and DOE-ID Contracts to set up a new I-NERI contract for CY-2004 and beyond for this test. A decision has not yet been made by DOE-ID concerning if this new contract can be sole-sourced to GA. Work continued on preparation for comparative nuclear analyses of cores containing coated particles with TRISO (IPyC/SiC/OPyC) coatings and TRIZO (IPyC/ZrC/OPyC) coatings. Comparison of the nuclear characteristics for 600 MW (th) cores using these two fuels will determine the impact on the core nuclear design of using coated particles where ZrC has been substituted for the SiC layer in TRISO coatings and set an upper bound for the other fuel particle designs where ZrC is used.
