Manufacturability estimation on burnable poison mixed fuel for improving criticality safety of HTGR fuel fabrication

Hasegawa, Toshinari; Fukaya, Yuji; Ueta, Shohei; Goto, Minoru

Proceedings of 28th International Conference on Nuclear Engineering; Nuclear Energy the Future Zero Carbon Power (ICONE 28) (Internet), 5 Pages, 2021/08

Burnable poison (BP) credit concept has been proposed as a criticality safety measure for commercial high temperature gas-cooled reactor (HTGR) fuel fabrication, so we estimated manufacturability of the BP-mixed UO$$_2$$ kernel for the practical use of the concept. As a BP, boron, gadolinium, erbium, and hafnium are investigated. Boron mixed fuel kernels are fabricated by mixing boric acid powder with U$$_3$$O$$_8$$ powder. In the case of the other BPs, BP nitrate powder is mixed with U$$_3$$O$$_8$$ powder. In order to confirm that BP remain in the kernels after the heat treatment processes, thermodynamic equilibrium analysis was performed. Above 450$$^circ$$C, boron would melt and vaporize during the heat treatment processes, so it was found that the boron mixed fuel kernel fabrication is difficult. On the other hand, it was found that gadolinium, erbium, and hafnium would change to solid oxides that do not melt and vaporize even at 2000$$^circ$$C, and there was no problem with manufacturability of the BP-mixed fuel kernel.

Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute has started development work on a large current conductor using high Tc superconductor (HTS) aiming at a fusion power reactor after the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER). HTS has a capability to produce a magnetic field of higher than 16 T, which is required in such a fusion power reactor. A trial fabrication of a 10-kA 12-T conductor was started using round Ag-alloy sheathed Bi-2212 strands, which has best performance at 4.2K, 16T at present. The conductor has about 34-mm diameter, and is composed of 729 HTS strands. Operating temperature is designed at not only 4 K but also 20K. The conductor sample is indirectly cooled and is solder-coated on the surface to use specific heat of the lead as much as possible, which at 20 K is almost comparable with specific heat of SHe at 4.5K, 0.6MPa. From the tests of the conductor, the fabrication of large HTS conductor and 10kA operation at 12 T and about 12.5 K were successfully performed and the possibility of HTS to use fusion application was demonstrated.
