Spent nuclear fuel with a hybrid heat pipe for electricity generation and thermal management

Energy Conversion and Management
Publication date

The authors of this journal article propose generating electricity using spent nuclear fuel using a hybrid heat pipe system comprised of a dry storage cask with heat pipes and a Stirling engine. Using a 1/10-scale test facility, they conducted an experimental test of heat transfer and electricity generation as the module of the storage system, and their results agree with a theoretical model.
