ASTRID has the objective to integrate innovative options in order to prepare the 4th generation reactors. In ASTRID, large number of tubes are installed above each fuel subassembly to monitor the core. These instrumentations such as thermocouples (TC) and Failed Fuel Detection and Location (FFDL) systems are integrated into Above Core Structure (ACS) with various sizes tubes. In the present study, the routing study for TC tubes and FFDL tubes was performed with 3D modeling and mock-up experiment of the ACS designed for ASTRID with 1500 MW thermal power in order to clarify the integration process and secure the design hypotheses. Although some problems on fabricability were found in the mock-up experiment, the possible solutions were proposed. The present study gives manufacturing feedback to design team and will contribute to increase the knowledge for ACS design and fabricability.

A conceptual design study of an advanced sodium-cooled fast reactor JSFR has progressed in the "Fast Reactor Cycle Technology Development (FaCT)" project in Japan. JSFR has two failed fuel detection systems in the core. One is a failed fuel detection (FFD) system which continuously monitors a fission product from failed fuel subassembly. The other is a failed fuel detection and location (FFDL) system which locates when it receives signals from FFD. In this study, requirements to the FFD-DN and the FFD-DN design to meet the requirements were investigated for the commercial and demonstration JSFR. For the FFDL systems, experiences in the previous fast reactors and the research and development of FFDL system for JSFR were investigated. Operation experiences of the Selector-valve FFDL system were accumulated in PFR and Phenix. Tagging-gas system experiences were accumulated in EBR-II and FFTF.

The development of safety protection system for JSFR is progressed in terms of logic circuits, selection of trip signals and its setting values for reactor trip. In addition, it is necessitated to evaluate the satisfaction for requirements of the safety protection system by safety analyses considering comprehensive parameter ranges. For this purpose, we will report the current status of the development focusing on the evaluation results for satisfaction of safety protection system based on safety standard.

FFD-DN (failed fuel detection system by delayed neutron monitoring) method is to measure the delayed neutron flux which is released from failed fuel to sodium coolant when fuel failure occurs. Here, the part of FFD-DN method will be cleared. Then, reactor trip before fuel failure propagation could be performed by new FFD-DN detection form with BC filter and collimator.

The safety analyses were carried out to confirm the sufficiency of the function of the plant protection system against the pump/diagrid link rupture, which is a candidate of the design basis event in pool type SFR. Sensitivity has been studied for the parameters which are thought significantly to affect the detection of the pump/diagrid link rupture, such as initial reactor power (at rated and 30% power operation), reactivity feedbacks and so forth. The sufficiency of the function was confirmed by the analysis results that at least two signals are transmitted for the detection of the pump/diagrid link rupture, which is the development target of the plant protection system in pool type SFR.
