Application of magnetohydrodynamics pumps in the fuel loop of Dual Fluid Reactor2019.06.17 11:46 - admin
In DFR, a chromium-uranium alloy with a lower melting point than for other mixtures of these elements is to be used as a fuel. Currently, a minidemonstrator of DFR is being developed that will use a pure uranium-238. The operating temperature will be as high as 1100-1300 °C, which poses a challenge for the electromagnetic pumps.
The aim of the seminar is to discuss different types of MHD pumps, presenting the advantages and disadvantages of several designs in the context of their possible application in DFR.
