Fast reactor core design considerations from proliferation resistance aspects

Kawashima, Katsuyuki; Ogawa, Takashi; Oki, Shigeo; Okubo, Tsutomu; Mizuno, Tomoyasu

Sodium-cooled fast reactor core design considerations are made to improve the proliferation resistance by focusing on the plutonium generated in the UO$$_{2}$$ blanket in the frame of the Fast Reactor Cycle Technology Development (FaCT) project. The appropriate design and treatments of the UO$$_{2}$$ blanket help to reduce the intrinsic proliferation potentials. Based on the 1500 MWe FaCT reference core, the three different cores (radial blanket-free core, the core with the low-enriched MOX fuel, and the core with MA-doped UO$$_{2}$$ fuel) are configured to meet the provisional proliferation resistance criteria as well as the core performance targets.
