6.1 Liquid Metal Cooled Reactors

Course subject(s) 6. Next Generation Nuclear Power

In this lecture video, Dr. Stefano Lorenzi will discuss metal cooled reactors.  The two designs are currently under study are the Lead- cooled Fast Reactor and the Sodium-cooled Fast Reactor. Historically, operation of these two designs have been proven.  An Experimental Breeder Reactor -II in the USA, a 60MW SFR was operated from 1964 to 1994 while an Alfa class soviet submarine utilized a 155MWth reactor which was cooled by  a lead-bismuth eutectic mixture.
