JAEA is now conducting “Fast Reactor Cycle Technology Development (FaCT)” project for commercialization before 2050s. A demonstration reactor for Japan Sodium-cooled Fast Reactor (JSFR) is planned to start operation around 2025. In the FaCT project, conceptual design study on the demonstration reactor has been performed since FY2007 to determine referential reactor specifications for the next stage of design work of licensing and construction study. Plant performance as a demonstration reactor for the 1.5 GWe commercial reactor JSFR is being compared between 750 MWe and 500 MWe plant designs. In this paper, the current status of the conceptual design study for the demonstration reactor plant is summarized.
