Heat transport analysis in a district heating system applying waste heat from GTHTR300, a commercial design of high-temperature gas-cooled reactor

Bulletin of the JSME (Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers)
Publication date
This technical analysis describes the design and efficiency of a district heating system using a GTHTR300 reactor in Hokkaido, Japan. The system goal is to provide structural heating and road snow melting using the reactor's waste heat while considering safety. The authors describe the differences in efficiency between single- and double-pipe implementations, and they present the relationship between efficiency, construction cost and long-term system economy.
