Application of Modified CANDLE Burnup to Very Small Long Life Gas-cooled Fast Reactor

Gas-cooled Fast Reactor is a good candidate for fourth generation nuclear power plant
that projected to be used started in 2030. In this study, modified CANDLE burn-up strategy is
adopted to create 300 MWt long life Gas-cooled Fast Reactor with metallic fuel U-10wt%Zr
without enrichment. This design demonstrated excellent performance with the average discharge
burn-up is about 25.9% HM.
