VVÉR-Based Power-Generating Units with Transcritical Coolant Parameters

  • V. V. Dolgov


The possibility of increasing the thermodynamic efficiency of power-generating units based on single-loop VVÉR with transcritical coolant–working body parameters is studied. The heat-utilizing turbine part of the power-generating unit is examined. Experience in developing and building turbines with transcritical parameters of the working body for fossil fuel power engineering facilitates the development of such turbines for nuclear power production.
