Status and prospects of LWR fuel development in Korea

Abstract

Currently 11 Nuclear Power Plants of 9.6 GWe comprising of 2 KSNP (Korea Standard Nuclear Power Plant - 1000 mwe PWR), 8 PWR and 1 CANDU units are in operation with average availability factor of 87.5% in 1996. 4 KSNP and 3 CANDU units of 6.1 GWe are under construction. 5 KSNP of Evolutionary PWR and CANDU are in its various planning stage. Due to industrialization and economic development, the average annual electric power consumption growth rate was 11.8% in past five years. This growth trend is likely to continue into next century. Therefore, total installed electric power generation capacity of Long Term Electric Power Expansion Planning has to be expanded to 2.2. fold of current capacity by 2010 including 4 KNGR (Korea Next Generation Reactor). 2 figs, 1 tab.
