Abstract [en]

In the present studies, we have utilized the Monte Carlo MCNP code to investigate the neutronic and the safety parameters of the Liquid Salt cooled - Very High Temperature Reactor (LS-VHTR). More precisely, we focused on he void, fuel and moderator temperature reactivity coefficients for two fuel types, enriched uranium and spent LWR fuel, and five different molten salts, NaF, BeF2, LiF, ZrF4, Li2Be4F. The results show that the total void worth coefficient can be set negative provided that the fuel to moderator ratio is optimized and the moderating ratio of the coolant is sufficiently large; whereas the fuel and moderator temperature reactivity coefficients are negative at any fuel to moderator ratio.
