Abstract:

A study made by MIT for ECNG of the effect of changing economic conditions on fuel cycle costs in nuclear power systems is described. Fuel cycle costs are computed for eight different cost bases, which may be used to represent the effect of most of the combinations of economic condi tions likely to occur during the life of the reactor selected for study. This is an advanced pressurized-water reactor with free-standing stainless steel of Zircaloy fuel cladding, designed for a net electric output of 461 Mw. Author
