IRRADIATION PERFORMANCE OF ADVANCED COATED PARTICLES FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE GAS COOLED REACTOR FUEL CYCLES
Advanced coated fuel particles doped with fission product and oxygen getters were screened for their mechanical irradiation performance compared to undoped reference coated fuel particles of the high and low enriched uranium cycle and the thorium - highly enriched uranium cycle. The in-pile test was conducted under nominal and extreme operating conditions of current high temperature gas cooled reactor requirements. Doped coated fuel particles do not perform significantly better than reference particle systems; although, some advanced kernel varieties showed promising results.
