Abstract: 200MW nuclear heating reactor (NHR) is developed based on 5MW testing heating reactor (THR-5). If 200MW NHR is constructed as commercial demonstration reactor, it will be used as heat source for desalination or urban heat supply. In order to improve its economics INET has been optimized its structure design. The upper hydraulic drive control rod just is the optimization result. the control rod drive is located at the upper part of reactor core, the fuel rod in each corner of the bundle will not be removed as T…
