The EPR™ reactor has been designed by AREVA to support economical fuel cycles. The progress in the reactor and systems design improves the reactor safety, and allows the EPRTM reactor to support the large range of high performance fuel management strategies covering cycle length from 12 to 24 months. Different fuel management strategies with 12, 18 and 24 month cycles are described. Economic analyses are performed to illustrate the low uranium consumption and the high fuel cycle performance compared with the fuel managements implemented in most current traditional PWR reactors.
