Steam-reheat option for supercritical-water-cooled reactors
SuperCritical-Water-cooled Reactors (SCWRs) are being developed as one of the Generation-IV nuclear-reactor concepts. Main objectives of the development are to increase thermal efficiency of a Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) and ...
Thermal aspects of high efficiency channel with conventional and alternative fuels in SuperCritical water-cooled reactor (SCWR) applications
Chosen as one of six Generation‒IV nuclear-reactor concepts, SuperCritical Water-cooled Reactors (SCWRs) are expected to have high thermal efficiencies within the range of 45 ‒ 50% owing to reactor‘s high outlet temperatures. ...
Conceptual design for a re-entrant type fuel channel for supercritical water-cooled nuclear reactors
Current CANDU-type nuclear reactors use a once-through fuel-channel with an annulus gas insulating it from the moderator. The current reference design for a CANDU-type SuperCritical Water-Cooled Reactor (SCWR) is to eliminate ...
Study on supercritical fluids in an intermediate heat exchanger for an SCWR hydrogen cogeneration system
SuperCritical Water-cooled Reactors (SCWRs) are one of six Generation-IV nuclear reactor concepts under development worldwide. SCWRs benefit from an increase in thermal efficiency due to the reactor coolant operating above ...
Thermal aspects of using alternative nuclear fuels in supercritical water-cooled reactors
A SuperCritical Water-cooled Nuclear Reactor (SCWR) is a Generation IV concept currently being developed worldwide. Unique to this reactor type is the use of light-water coolant above its critical point. The current research ...
Study on specifics of thermalhydraulics and neutronics of pressure-channel supercritical water-cooled reactors (SCWRs)
A group of countries has initiated an international collaboration to develop a next generation (i.e., Generation IV) of nuclear reactors. Chosen as one of the six Generation‒IV nuclear-reactor concepts, the SCWRs are ...
