Title: AGR-5/6/7 Experiment Monitoring and Simulation Progress

Abstract

Advanced Gas Reactor (AGR)--5/6/7 is the last of a series of AGR experiments conducted in the Advanced Test Reactor (ATR) at Idaho National Laboratory (INL) in support of development and qualification of tri-structural isotropic (TRISO) low-enriched fuel for use in high temperature gas-cooled reactors. The test train contains five separate capsules that are independently controlled and monitored. Each capsule contains multiple 12.51 mm long compacts filled with low-enriched uranium carbide/oxide (UCO) TRISO fuel particles. The objectives of the AGR-5/6/7 experiment are to: 1. Irradiate reference-design fuel particles to support fuel qualification. 2. Establish operating margins for the fuel beyond normal operating conditions. 3. Provide irradiated fuel performance data and irradiated fuel samples for post-irradiation examination (PIE) and safety testing.
