ABSTRACT

Compact High Temperature Reactor (CHTR) is a 100 kWth, lead-bismuth eutectic (LBE) cooled reactor having several advanced passive safety features to enable its operation as compact power pack and facilitate demonstration of technologies for high temperature process heat applications. Heat pipes form an important part of the heat removal path and have to operate reliably. This poses considerable technical challenges. As an initial step, high temperature thermosiphons have been proposed. Computer codes, based on empirical correlations, have been used to analyse various parametric cases in order to arrive at a feasible design.
