essentially constant for most of the reactor’s operating life, with localized “ripples” superimposed (which are due to the different stages in the refuelling cycle at which fuel in different channels finds itself at any given time). • CANDU fuel is in the form of short (cm-long) bundles of simple design. radiation exposure to personnel is a hallmark of CANDU reactors (2). Because of on-power refuelling, the CANDU system is well suited for removing defected fuel without any reduction in reactor power. Once detected and located, the defected fuel can be discharged by the fuelling machines into the reactor's irradiated fuel bays.

CANDU reactor core design CANDU is the most efficient of all reactors in using uranium: it uses about 15% less uranium than a pressurized water reactor for each megawatt of elec tricity produced. Use of natural uranium widens the source of supply and makes fuel fabrication easier. Most countries can manufacture the relatively inexpensive fuel. The CANDU (Canada Deuterium Uranium) is a Canadian pressurized heavy-water reactor design used to generate electric power. The acronym refers to its deuterium oxide (heavy water) moderator and its use of (originally, natural) uranium fuel. CANDU reactors were first developed in the late s and s by a partnership between Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL), the Hydro-Electric Power.

The first is the Reduced Enrichment for Research and Test Reactors (RERTR) programme, and the second is the take-back of spent research reactor fuel by the country where it was originally enriched. The NRX reactor was used extensively in the early fuel behaviour tests. The reactor was shut down in Most (if not all) NRX fuel behaviour experiments were performed in the X-4 loop on strings of three instrumented fuel bundles, consisting of clusters of three elements ( cm OD, 50 cm long).Author: D.C.
