    The liquid fluoride thorium reactor (LFTR; often pronounced lifter) is a type of molten salt use the thorium fuel cycle with a fluoride-based, molten, liquid salt for a typical design, the liquid is pumped between a critical core and an external heat exchanger where the heat is transferred to a nonradioactive secondary salt. The secondary salt then transfers its . One of the most important problems in the in core fuel management optimization is to select a proper objective function. In a nuclear reactor, there are so many parameters which can be selected as cost function. Among In this investigation, we analyzed these effects on the fuel management optimization of a typical pressurized water.

Optimization of in-core nuclear fuel management in a pressurized water reactor by Richard Bartholomew Stout Download PDF EPUB FB2

Abstract. This paper reports on an in-core nuclear fuel management code for pressurized water reactor reload design developed that combines the stochastic optimization technique of simulated annealing with a computationally efficient core physics model based on second-order accurate generalized perturbation theory.

Introduction. The design of pressurized water reactors (PWR) reload cores is a formidable combinatorial optimization problem. The designer’s task is to find the configuration of fresh and partially burnt fuel and burnable poisons (BPs) that optimizes the performance of the reactor over the subsequent cycle, while ensuring that various operational constraints are by: Buy HEURISTIC RULES IN GENETIC ALGORITHM FOR FUEL MANAGEMENT OPTIMIZATION: In-Core Fuel Management Optimization for Pressurized Water Reactors (PWRs) on FREE SHIPPING on qualified orders5/5(1).

Also known as In-Core Fuel Management Optimization, the LP optimization is a prominent real-world problem in Nuclear Engineering with high complexity due to its combinatorial formulation with a large number of feasible solutions, a large number of sub-optimal solutions, disconnected feasible regions, high dimensionality, complex and time Author: Anderson Alvarenga de Moura Meneses, Lenilson Moreira Araujo, Fernando Nogueira Nast, Patrick Vascon.

The nuclear fuel cycle, also called nuclear fuel chain, is the progression of nuclear fuel through a series of differing stages. It consists of steps in the front end, which are the preparation of the fuel, steps in the service period in which the fuel is used during reactor operation, and steps in the back end, which are necessary to safely manage, contain, and either reprocess or dispose of.

Optimization of the arrangement of fuel assemblies and burnable poisons when reloading pressurized water reactors has, in the past, been performed with many di erent algorithms in an attempt to make reactors more economic and fuel effi cient. A nuclear reactor core is the portion of a nuclear reactor containing the nuclear fuel components where the nuclear reactions take place and the heat is generated.

Typically, the fuel will be low-enriched uranium contained in thousands of individual fuel pins. The core also contains structural components, the means to both moderate the neutrons and control the reaction, and the.

An important aspect of managing a nuclear reactor is how to design refuellings, and from the s to the present different artificial intelligence (AI) techniques have been applied to this problem.

A section of the reactor core resembles a symmetrical grid; long fuel assemblies are inserted there, some of them new, some of them partly spent.
