Abstract: The Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute (JAERI) designed and constructed the high temperature engineering test reactor (HTTR) in order to establish and upgrade the technology basis for the high temperature gas-cooled reactor (HTGR) and develop the technology for high temperature heat applications. The HTTR is a helium-cooled and graphite-moderated HTGR with a thermal power of 30 MW and a maximum reactor outlet coolant temperature of 950 • C. The first criticality was attained on November 10, 1998 and the r…
