Thorium as fissile material has overweigh advantages compared to Uranium in order to have a long-life PWR reactor without replacement fuel. Additional of Protactinium as a burnable poison is effective to reduce excess reactivity in the beginning of the reactor operation. This study aims to analyze the neutronic, burnup fuel, thermalhydraulic and kinetic calculations in regard to reactor safety. The calculation is performed with SRAC program using JENDL-32 as data library. The results show that… CONTINUE READING
