Korea Atomic Energy
Research Institute (KAERI) is developing an Advanced
HANARO Reactor (AHR) based on the HANARO experiences
through its design to operation stages. AHR will be a 20
MW multi-purpose research reactor and loaded with the
HANARO fuel assemblies of rod type. It uses U3Si2
dispersion fuel with a uranium density of 4.0 gU/cm3
as the reference fuel. HANARO is optionally considering
a core conversion by using high density U-Mo fuel of up
to 6.0 gU/cm3. This paper compares the
neutronic characteristics of 4.0 gU/cm3 U3Si2
fuel and up to 6.0 gU/cm3 U-Mo fuels at the
AHR core, which are under an irradiation test at HANARO.
The compared parameters are the linear heat generation
rate, control rod worth, cycle length and neutron flux.
