Abstract

The Korean HCSB (helium cooled solid breeder) TBM (test blanket module) is proposed with its specific compositions of lithium ceramic, beryllium and graphite in pebble form. In the Korean HCSB TBM, the amount of beryllium is reduced and the reduction is replaced by graphite for a neutron reflector, while tritium breeding ratio (TBR) remains almost unchanged with relatively low Li6 enrichment of ∼40%. However, the previous Korean HCSB was designed based on the LOCAL assumption, in which the surroundings are assumed by the reflective boundary condition. In this research, we establish a simple GLOBAL neutronics model based on demo fusion reactor and perform neutronics analyses including depletion (transmutation) calculation during 100 EFPDs (effective full power days) using the modified MONTEBURNS code. © 2010 Published by Elsevier B.V.
