More efficient operation of reactor plant fuel assemblies can be achieved through the use of new technical solutions aimed at obtaining more uniform distribution of coolant over the fuel assembly section, more intense heat removal on convex heat-transfer surfaces, and higher values of departure from nucleate boiling ratio (DNBR). Technical solutions using which it is possible to obtain more intense heat removal on convex heat-transfer surfaces and higher DNBR values in reactor plant fuel assemblies are considered. An alternative heat removal arrangement is described using which it is possible to obtain a significantly higher power density in a reactor plant and essentially lower maximal fuel rod temperature. © 2014 Pleiades Publishing, Inc.

Prospects for enhancing heat transfer in the core of reactor plants by using annular fuel elements are considered. Advantages of changing over to use of annular fuel elements are analyzed, and problems that must be solved are identified. It is shown that application of annular fuel elements makes it possible to increase the specific power of a reactor while keeping its safety indicators at a high level. © 2010 Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.
