Economic Analysis of Fast Spectrum Reactors
Economics always plays a pivotal role in the decision process associated with the construction of any project. Accordingly, we shall endeavor in this chapter to outline the key factors that influence the cost of building a nuclear power plant— with special emphasis regarding fast spectrum reactors. It is very difficult at the ...
Reactivity control of fast-spectrum reactors by reversible hydriding of
Reactivity control is examinedfor long-lived fast-spectrum nuclear reactors contain- ing yttrium hydride moderating zones. Temperature variation of thehydride provides at- tendant reversible changes in the equilibrium concentration of hydrogen which in turn control the reactivity. Storage of released hydrogen in a reservoir ...
Analysis of Advanced Sodium-cooled Fast Reactor Core Designs
Moreover, minor actinides become fissionable in a fast-neutron spectrum, enabling full closure of the fuel cycle and leading to a minimization of long-lived radioactive wastes. The sodium-cooled fast reactor (SFR) is one of the most promising candidates to meet the. Generation IV International Forum (GIF) declared goals.
