Conceptual Design of Molten Salt Loop Experiment for MIT Research Reactor
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. MIT Reactor Redesign Program, 2011-08-01)
Molten salt is a promising coolant candidate for Advanced High Temperature Reactor (AHTR) Gen-IV designs. The low neutron absorption, high thermal capacity, chemical inertness, and high boiling point at low pressure of ...
Conceptual Design of Nuclear-Geothermal Energy Storage Systems for Variable Electricity Production
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. Nuclear Energy and Sustainability Program, 2011-06)
Nuclear plants have high capital costs and low operating costs that favor base-load operation. This characteristic of nuclear power has been a critical constraint that limits the portion of nuclear power plants in a grid ...
