原子力機構(JAEA)は、耐酸化性向上のため高温ガス炉(HTGR)の燃料要素へのSiC/C混合母材の適用に関するR&Dを開始している。このR&Dの一部として、SiC/C混合母材燃料コンパクトを使ったHTGRの核熱設計を行った。核熱設計は、途上国用の小型HTGRであるHTR50Sをベースに行った。日本における製造実績を考慮し、ウランの濃縮度の上限は10wt%とし、濃縮度と可燃性毒物(BP)の種類はベースとしたHTR50Sと等しい(各々3及び2種類)とした。以上の制限内で、我々は本来のHTR50Sと同等の性能を持つ炉心の核熱設計に成功した。この核熱設計に基づき、通常運転時の被覆燃料粒子の内圧に対する健全性は保たれると評価された。

Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) has started R&D for apply SiC/C mixed matrix to fuel element of high temperature gas-cooled reactors (HTGRs) to improve oxidation resistance of fuel. Nuclear thermal design of HTGR with SiC/C mixed matrix fuel compacts was carried out as a part of above R&Ds. Nuclear thermal design was carried out based on a small sized HTGR for developing countries, HTR50S. Maximum enrichment of uranium is set to be 10 wt%, because coated fuel particles with 10 wt% uranium have been fabricated in Japan. Numbers of kinds of enrichment and burnable poisons (BPs) were set to be same as those of original HTR50S (3 and 2, respectively). We succeeded in nuclear thermal design of a small sized HTGR which performance was equivalent to original HTR50S, with SiC/C mixed matrix fuel compacts. Based on nuclear thermal design, intactness of coated fuel particles was evaluated to be kept on internal pressure during normal operation.
