Abstract [en]

The present study investigates the effect of neutron source on the incineration of Light Water Reactors waste by the Gas Turbine-Modular Helium Reactor. Three different core configurations have been analyzed: critical, accelerator and fusion driven systems. In the accelerator driven system, neutrons are generated by a 1000 MeV proton beam interacting with a lead target. In the fusion driven system, neutrons are generated, in the center of the core, with a fixed energy of 14.1 MeV, through a deuterium-tritium reaction. The comparison of the actinides transmutation for the three configurations shows unclear benefits for the driven systems.
