General top level requirements & target of demonstration SFR.
|TLR_Fundamental Design Specification||TLR_FDS-1:||The SFR common design reactor shall be capable to generate electricity.
Its power is defined as 1500 MWth (ASTRID600 requirement).
The fuel is based on mixed uranium-plutonium oxide.
The SFR common design reactor shall demonstrate closed fuel cycle capabilities.
The SFR common design reactor is a sodium cooled fast reactor based on pool-type architecture.
|TLR_Strategy||TLR_STRA-1:||The objective is to develop a SFR common design reactor (based on French ASTRID − 1500 MWth project) for industrial demonstration and as a step for commercial size Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) to be deployed from the second part of the 21st century.|
|TLR_STRA-2:||The SFR common design reactor shall be extrapolated to a commercial size NPP (from 1000 to 1500 electrical MW per unit).|
|TLR_STRA-3:||The SFR common design reactor shall be designed based on the technologies that can fulfill both France and Japan site conditions.|
|TLR_STRA-4:||The SFR common design reactor is consistent with the international objectives developed for Generation IV (GEN-IV) nuclear systems.|
|TLR_Safety||TLR_SAFETY-1:||The SFR common design reactor shall be consistent with the safety objectives for GEN-IV nuclear systems.|
|TLR_SAFETY-2:||The SFR common design reactor shall comply at least with licensing requirements of French Safety Authority (ASN) and Japanese Safety Authority (NRA).|
|TLR_Economy & Performances||TLR_ECON&PERF-1:||The SFR common design reactor shall demonstrate that its extrapolation to the future commercial SFR will be competitive compared to other electricity production systems, while considering the advantages offered by fast neutron spectrum and sodium outlet high temperature.|
|TLR_ECON&PERF-2:||The SFR common design reactor will be developed for minimizing the construction phase duration, in order to demonstrate the competitiveness of the future SFR commercial reactor.|
|TLR_ECON&PERF-3:||The SFR common design reactor shall be achievable of higher availability factor comparing with existing reactors.|
|TLR_ECON&PERF-4:||The expected lifetime for non-repairable or non-replaceable equipment shall be at least equivalent or longer for those of existing reactors.|
|TLR_ECON&PERF-5:||The capability to repair and replace components has to be maximized.|
|TLR_ECON&PERF-6:||The SFR common design reactor shall be designed while considering economically reasonable decommissioning concepts, which are sufficiently known and mastered.|
|TLR_Sustainability & Environment||TLR_SUST-1:||The SFR common design reactor shall be consistent with the sustainability objectives for GEN-IV nuclear systems.|
|TLR_SUST-2:||The SFR common design reactor shall enable the use of different types of core configuration in order to demonstrate its ability for SFR commercial reactors in accordance with possible deployment scenario and waste management strategy in France and Japan (breeder, break-even, burner, Minor Actinides management).|
|TLR_SUST-3:||The quantity, chemical toxicity and radio-toxicity of the wastes generated by the SFR common design reactor during operation and decommissioning phases, shall be minimized and their future disposal shall be identified (Identification of specific process treatment, temporary storage solutions and disposal solutions).|
|TLR_ENVI-1:||The development of the SFR common design reactor will take into the account the international environmental standards.|
|TLR_ENVI-2:||The SFR common design reactor shall demonstrate that its environmental impact is minimized and at least equivalent or lower to existing reactors.|
|TLR_ENVI-3:||The SFR common design reactor shall minimize the need of non-naturally abundant materials and the use of strategic materials that could have an impact on the environment.|
|TLR_Proliferation Resistance & Physical Protection||TLR_PR&PP-1:||The SFR common design reactor shall be consistent with the IAEA non-proliferation policy.|
|TLR_PR&PP-2:||The SFR common design reactor including its nuclear island shall be designed to minimize the risk of malevolence. This includes both the prevention and the mitigation of these risks.|
|TLR_Codes & Standards||TLR_C&S-1:||Design must be carried out upon authorized Codes & Standards or those to be authorized which available in both countries.|
