Project objectives

The project is devoted to the research in the new high temperature reactor technologies: HTGR – High Temperature Gas Cooled Reactor and DFR – Dual Fluid Reactor, which were indicated in the report of the Polish Ministry of Energy Committee for Deployment of High Temperature Reactors. The studies cover all aspects of these Generation IV reactors such as the design, the neutronics and reactor physics, the heat processes as well as the safety analyses.

The project is oriented for:

  • Building an interdisciplinary team of  Ph.D. students
  • Highly advanced research on Gen IV Nuclear Reactors
  • Support for the Polish Nuclear Energy Program
