Physical assessment of the load-following and starting procedures for the Molten Salt Fast Reactor

Abstract : This paper discusses a physical evaluation of the driving procedures of the MSFR, to assess the flexibility of the concept during normal operation. These studies focus on the whole fuel circuit behavior in interaction with the intermediate circuit during the start-up and the load following phases. The latter relies on advanced point-kinetics modeling and simplified thermal evaluations. Regarding the start-up procedure, the studies deal with the determination of the reactivity during the filling of the core and its uncertainties compared to the reactivity margins available (injection of fissile matter, operating temperature variation…).
