  • Generation IV: Nuclear Reactor Systems for the Future

The GEN IV course is particularly designed for professionals, engineers, researchers and students with an interest in a global view of the 4th generation of nuclear reactor as well as the scientists already involved in GEN IV activities.

Content

  • The course covers the 6 systems selected by GIF (SFR, LFR, GFR, VHTR, SCWR, MSR) and addresses cross-cutting aspects (safety, materials and fuels, energy conversion, nuclear fuel cycle).
  • Focus on Gen IV demos and prototypes (ASTRID, ALFRED, ALLEGRO, HTR-PM).

 

Targeted Skills

  • Acquire a general view of GIF (Generation IV International Forum) objectives and organization.
  • Explain the rationale for the development of a 4 th generation of nuclear reactors.
  • Describe the main characteristics of each system, and formulate their design, performance and safety characteristics.
  • Discuss the technical challenges they are faced with for practical development.

 

For who?

  • Professionals, engineers, researchers and students with an interest in a global view of the 4th generation of nuclear reactors.
  • Scientists already involved in Gen IV systems activities or planning to work in such areas.
