The water-cooled ceramic breeder (WCCB) blanket is one candidate for the Chinese Fusion Engineering Testing Reactor (CFETR), and it is being developed at the Institute of Plasma Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. This paper presents an updated WCCB blanket concept design that is expected to cover the CFETR operation modes of 200 MW, 500 MW, 1 GW, and 1.5 GW fusion power and achieve tritium self-sufficiency with the latest core parameters (major radius R = 7.2 m; minor radius a = 2.2 m) and mission. The feasibility of the new blanket design is evaluated considering neutronics and thermal-hydraulics aspects.
