The fundamental design of BREST-OD-300 and BREST-1200 reactors is presented. It is shown that it is necessary to develop nuclear energy complexes based on the BREST nuclear system. The stages, the status of scientific research and development work over the entire nuclear power complex, and the results of an expert analysis of the BREST-OD-300 design are presented.

Status and Prospects for Russia's Fuel Cycle

Russia has given priority to nuclear power in its long-term strategy to increase its electricity generation capacity. But the sustainability of this strategy over the long term depends on the ability

Local Gas Purification System in Spent Nitride Fuel Oxidation

A local gas-purification system of the voloxidation operation is examined within the framework of the technology of regeneration of spent mixed uranium-plutonium nitride fuel from fast reactors. The

C-14 Production in Lead-Cooled Reactors

The increase in the energy consumption and the expected growth in the nuclear capacity make it necessary to look on for new technologies based in more sustainable and safe principles, such as

Tritium in Nitride Fuel of Fast Reactors

The formation of tritium in reactors, its behavior in nitride fuel and possibility of bonding with fission products, and the characteristics of migration out of the fuel-element cladding are

Study of construction materials for a lead-cooled reactor

In the development process for the BREST-OD-300 lead-cooled fast reactor, 10Kh15N9S3B1 and 10Kh9NSMFB steels were chosen for the main equipment, the corrosion resistance and mechanical properties

Lead-Cooled Fast Reactor Annular UN Fuel Design and Development of Performance Analysis Program

A kind of annular uranium nitride (UN) fuel suitable for lead-cooled fast reactor applications has been designed in this study. The design is directly targeting two main issues of UN fuel: severe

Summary of Lead-Cooled Fast Reactor Research

Lead-cooled fast reactor is a fast neutron reactor cooled by liquid lead or lead bismuth alloy. As one of the six main reactors of the fourth generation reactor system, lead-cooled fast reactor can



Mononitride Fuel for Fast Reactors

Substantiation is given for the development of nuclear power based on inherently-safe fast reactors with a mononitride core. Fundamental studies and design work on the development of such reactors

Fuel Cycle for BREST Reactors

than it is today. Fast reactors operating in a closed uranium-plutonium cycle could be the basis for this growth. But, wide adoption of such reactors will be possible if the developers solve the
