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.
