    The SP Space Reactor Power System is being developed by GE, under contract to the U.S. Department of Energy, to provide electrical power in the range of 10's to 's of kW. The system represents an enabling technology for a wide variety of earth orbital and interplanetary science missions, nuclear electric propulsion (NEP) stages, and. Closed Brayton Cycle Power Conversion Systems for Nuclear Reactors: Modeling, Operations, and Validation Steven A. Wright, Ronald J. Lipinski, Milton E. Vernon, Travis Sanchez Prepared by Sandia National Laboratories Albuquerque, New Mexico and Livermore, California Sandia is a multiprogram laboratory operated by Sandia Corporation.

    reactor was designed to provides 1 MW th for a period of 10 years at temperatures of K. A direct-cycle Brayton power conversion system was baselined for power conversion. For Lunar and space applications a radiator was used for heat rejection, while a convective design was used for the Mars concept. The Pylon was designed to have. Finally, the effect of using alternative power conversion subsystems, with SP reactor technology was investigated. One of the principal concerns for any space based system is mass; consequently, this study focused on estimating reactor, shield, and total system mass.

This study examines the potential for integrating Brayton-cycle power conversion with the SP reactor for lunar surface power system applications. Two designs were characterized and modeled. The first design integrates a kWe SP Brayton power system with a lunar Size: KB. @article{osti_, title = {SP reactor with Brayton conversion for lunar surface applications}, author = {Mason, L S and Rodriguez, C D and Mckissock, B I and Hanlon, J C and Mansfield, B C}, abstractNote = {Examined here is the potential for integrating Brayton-cycle power conversion with the SP reactor for lunar surface power system applications.

This study examines the potential for integration of Brayton cycle power conversion with the SP‐ reactor for lunar surface power system applications. Two designs were characterized and modeled. The first design integrates a kWe SP‐ Brayton power system with a lunar lander. This system is intended to meet early lunar mission power needs while minimizing on‐site installation Cited by: 8.

This study examines the potential for integrating Brayton-cycle power conversion with the SP reactor for lunar surface power system applications. Two designs were characterized and modeled. The first design integrates a kWe SP Brayton power system with a lunar lander. Results of the study indicated that either the Brayton or Stirling power conversion subsystems could be integrated with the SP‐ reactor for either a lunar or Mars surface power application.

For the lunar environment, the reactor and primary coolant loop would be contained in a guard vessel to protect from a loss of primary loop containment. This paper presents a comparison of reactor and power conversion design options for 50 kWe class lunar and Mars surface power applications with scaling from 25 to kWe.

Design concepts and integration approaches are provided for three reactor-converter combinations: gas-cooled Brayton, liquid-metal Stirling, and liquid-metal : Lee S. Mason. applications include earth orbiting platforms and lunar/Mars surface power. INTRODUCTION As human visions of space applications expand and as we probe further and further out into the universe so will our needs for power expand, and missions will evolve in.

Brayton conversion systems are currently under study by NASA for surface power applications. Surface reactors may be used for the moon to power human outposts enabling extended stays and closed loop life support.

A Martian/Lunar surface reactor system (Bushman, et al., ) and a transportable high temperature reactor (Sun et al., ) were designed by MIT in support of extraterrestrial human exploration efforts. It has a fast spectrum, lithium heat pipe cooled reactor which utilizes UN fuel and can produces MWt.

Interplanetary and Lunar Surface SP Nuclear Power Applications This paper describes how the SP Space Reactor Power System (SRPS) can be tailored to meet the specific requirements for a lunar surface power system to meet the needs of the consolidation and utilization phases outlined in the day NASA SEI study report.RAPID-L and RAPID operator-free fast reactors combined with a thermoelectric power conversion system M Kambe, H Tsunoda, K Nakajima, and T Iwamura Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part A: Journal of Power and Energy 5, Several ways were explored of extending SP reactor technology to higher power levels.

One approach was to use the reference SP pin design and increase the fuel pin length and the number of fuel pins as needed to provide higher capability. The impact on scaling of a modified and advanced SP reactor technology was also explored.

Finally, the effect of using alternative power.
