The University of California, Berkeley (UCB) is developing a pre-conceptual design for a commercial pebble-bed, fluoride-salt-cooled, high-temperature reactor (PB-FHR). The baseline design for this Mark-I PB-FHR plant (Mk1) is a 236-MWth reactor. The Mk1 uses a fluoride salt coolant with solid, coated-particle pebble fuel. The Mk1 design differs from earlier FHR designs because it uses a nuclear air-Brayton combined cycle designed to produce 100 MWe of base-load electricity using a modified… Expand
