Flattening of the Power Distribution in the HTGR Core with Structured Control Rods

Latest PHD4GEN Article by: M. Górkiewicz & J. Cetnar

Control rods (CRs) have a significant influence on reactor performance. Withdrawal of a control rod leaves a region of the core significantly changed due to lack of absorber, leading to increased fission rate and later to Xe135 buildup. In this paper, an innovative concept of structured control rods made of tungsten is studied. Read Full Paper

The work was supported by the NCBR project “New Reactor Concepts and Safety Analyses for the Polish Nuclear Energy Program”, POWR.03.02.00-00-I005/17.
