Present status of htgr development program in Japan
Energy, 1991, vol. 16, issue 1, 129-136
The JAERI started the HTGR development program in Japan in 1969 so as mainly to construct an experimental reactor for direct heat application. The energy situation, however, has changed remarkably in Japan during the last 20 years, then, the construction of High Temperature Engineering Test Reactor (HTTR) of 30MW in thermal power was decided instead of an experimental HTGR. The HTTR aims at establishing and upgrading the technology basis necessary for an HTGR, serving at the same time as a potential tool for new and innovative basic researches.
