Progress in INEST on Thermophysical Properties of Working Fluid in Space Nuclear Power Generation System
Recently, the professinoal research team of Jie Yu/ Zhibin Chen, The Institute of Nuclear Energy Safety Technology, Hefei Institutes of Physical Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences, has made a new progress in researching physical properties of working fluids in space reactor nuclear power generation system. The research paper "Influence of non-ideal gas characteristics on working fluid properties and thermal cycle of space nuclear power generation system" has been published in the International Authoritative Journal "Energy". Chi Xu is the first author, Dali Yu and Jie Yu are corresponding authors.This work can be used as reference for the development, accurate simulation and assessment of space nuclear CBC power generation system.
