Abstract

The analysis is presented considering thermodynamic cycle of the energy conversion unit of the fourth-generation modular nuclear power plant with a hightemperature helium reactor of 250 MWt thermal power designated for the combined production of electricity and hydrogen. The analysis is given providing influence of steam generator parameters on the thermodynamic cycle efficiency.
