Although fissile material is usually not considered when thinking of fusion reactors (except in fusion-fission hybrid concepts), they have a potential to breed nuclear weapon relevant material (Pu, Tritium) which should not be neglected. We developed a MCNPX model of the 2006 published concept A of the European Power Plant Conceptual Study to analyze the potential for Pu production in a fusion reactor. Production potentials are calculated for varying uranium content replacing the Pb-17Li alloy… CONTINUE READING
