Abstract

A model for the integration of the CANada Deuterium Uranium (CANDU) Super Critical Water Reactor (SCWR) with the copper chloride cycle to produce hydrogen fuel is proposed in this paper. In the copper chloride cycle, oxygen and hydrogen reactor require temperatures of 530  ̊c and 375 ̊c, respectively. These can be provided through the CANDU SCWR super heated steam outlet with temperature of 625 ̊c, and direct loop pressure of 25 MPa and regenerative loop pressure of 6 MPa.
