Abstract

The preliminary core design of DEMO, the Italian proposal for an industrial demonstrator of an ELSY-like Lead Fast Reactor, is here described. Aiming at the demonstration of the technology viability far a future commercial power plant, as well as of the construction and operation, the main guidelines outlined in a previous work (see S. Bortot et al., FPN-P9LU-041) have been exploited up to the definition of the here proposed care Iayout. The preliminary design of the fuel assembly, the fuel pin and of the control system (made of Finger Absorber Rods in analogy with ELSY - wrapperless option) has been realized. A detailed neutronic analysis, concerning the full characterization of the static and dynamic core configurations, has been performed.
