PLUTONIUM TRANSMUTATION IN THORIUM FUEL CYCLE
17th Symposium of AER on VVER Reactor Physics and Reactor Safety (2007, Yalta, Crimea (Ukraine, back then))
ACTINIDE TRANSMUTATION AND SPENT FUEL DISPOSAL
The study of thorium fuel cycle with plutonium as a supporting fissile material was performed under VVER-440 and PWR conditions. Our analysis was focused on the plutonium transmutation potential, amount of separated plutonium in equilibrium cycle and total amount of finally disposed plutonium. Calculations were performed by the HELIOS spectral code.
