The importance of using the mixed neutron flux in activation analysis of D-<sup>3</sup>He fueled reactors

H. Y. Khater; M. E. Sawan [Proceedings] The 14th IEEE/NPSS Symposium Fusion Engineering, 1991

It is emphasized that the mixed neutron source should always be used in any activation and safety analysis performed for D-3He reactors. It is noted that performing any activation analysis by using the two components of the neutron source (D-D and D-T) separately leads to overestimating the induced activity. The overestimation is determined by the destruction rate of the parent ...


Manifold concept design for ITER Gas Injection System

T. Jiang; B. Li; W. Li; M. Wang; Y. Pan; S. Maruyama; Y. Yang 2011 IEEE/NPSS 24th Symposium on Fusion Engineering, 2011

The main functions of ITER Gas Injection System (GIS) are to provide gas fuelling for plasma, wall conditioning operation, and neutral beam injectors. Dedicated manifold, which contains independent tubes for H2/D2, H2, T2, 4He/3He, N2/Ne, Ar and evacuation, is the key part of gas injection lines. It shall deliver gases from the tritium plant to the various fuelling systems. This ...


Canadian Solutions to Global Energy and Environment Challenges: Green Atoms

R. B. Duffey; D. F. Torgerson; A. I. Miller; J. Hopwood 2006 IEEE EIC Climate Change Conference, 2006

Calls for energy conservation, and rapidly rising energy costs are gravely at odds with the needs of the energy poor in the industrial developing countries, and the global eco-system itself. A responsible answer and approach is available using Canadian CANDUtrade (Canadian Deuterium Uranium) nuclear energy technology, which meets the goals of safe, affordable, reliable energy, whilst contributing to a sustainable ...


DIII-D radiation shielding procedures and experiences

P. L. Taylor [Proceedings] The 14th IEEE/NPSS Symposium Fusion Engineering, 1991

The DIII-D tokamak operates with a neutron radiation shield to allow enhanced plasma operations with increased neutron production while minimizing the site boundary dose level. Neutron rates as high as 4×1015 neutron/s and total neutron production as high as 4×1015 neutrons per shot are obtained while maintaining the site dose below the DOE (Department of Energy) administrative level of 20 ...


Neutralisation of intense ion beams at JET

B. Crowley; S. J. Cox; E. Surrey; I. Jenkins; D. Keeling; T. T. C. Jones; A. R. Ellingboe 20th IEEE/NPSS Symposium onFusion Engineering, 2003., 2003

Neutralization is an important issue in the design of neutral beam injection (NBI) systems for heating and fueling fusion plasmas. It has long been established that the neutralization efficiency of the JET injectors falls short of the theoretical value as determined by the expected gas target thickness and the well-known reaction cross-sections. This problem is even more acute in the ...

  • Nuclear Power

    Nuclear power plants utilize the energy released in a nuclear reaction as the source of thermal energy to heat steam which in turn drives a steam turbine that is connected to a generator to generate electricity. The most common fuel used as a source of this nuclear reaction is uranium. This chapter discusses the differences between alpha, beta, gamma, and neutron byproducts of nuclear reactions. A reactor is a vessel that contains the nuclear fuel, control rods, and other systems to support the nuclear reaction. The boiling water reactor BWR design utilizes light water for both coolant and moderator. The boiling water reactor (BWR) only has one loop and the reactor is the "boiler" in the thermodynamic cycle. The pressurized heavy water reactor (PHWR) uses heavy water as the moderator. Heavy water is a molecule that contains deuterium and oxygen as compared with light water which is a molecule that contains hydrogen and oxygen.
