Abstract

This work concerns with the problem of monitoring an Advanced Gas-cooled
Nuclear Reactor (AGR) core. This plant (figure 1) makes use of the heat
given by the nuclear efficient reaction to produce electricity by means of steam
turbines. These are driven by steam, which is heated, from the AGR gas using
a heat exchanger. One of the advantages of a gas cooled reactor is the high
temperature that the gas can achieve so that when it is used in conjunction
with the heat exchanger and steamed turbine the thermal efficiency is very
high.
