Running-in strategies for the low-enriched 600 MW(e) D-HHT reactor. Part 1. Comparison of different on-load refuelling schemes

Abstract

This paper presents detailed burn-up calculations and fuel management strategies for the Dragon-HHT, D-HHT, reference core. The reference layout was chosen from the outcome of a design survey with the 1-D equilibrium fuel cycle code FLATTER. The decision was based on aspects of engineering and economics. The purpose of the investigation is to devise a suitable first core, follow the irradiation history of the fuel and the general behaviour of the reactor during the first core replacements until equilibrium operating conditions are reached. A detailed description of time dependant burn-up and spatial power production for specified reactivity limits is required. For this purpose the reactor code system VSOP was employed. Different combinations of the parameters are investigated and the influence on reactor operation and economics discussed. From the strategy analysis a reference fuel management scheme is chosen for the low enriched 600 MW(e) D-HHT reactor.
