Title: Advanced liquid-metal reactor IHTS (intermediate heat transport system) and SGS (steam generator system) design

Abstract

The US Department of Energy (DOE) advanced liquid-metal reactor (ALMR) 1395-MW(electric) power plant design consists of three power blocks. A power block is composed of three identical 471-MW(thermal) reactor modules, each with its own steam generator system (SGS). The three saturated cycle SGSs are headered to provide steam to a common turbine generator system for the power block. The purpose of this paper is to describe the reference design and layout for the intermediate heat transport system (IHTS) and SGS of the DOE ALMR.
