Actual Operation and Control of High-Temperature Engineering Test Reactor
The high-temperature engineering test reactor (HTTR) (Fig. 10.1) is the first high-temperature gas-cooled reactor in Japan. It first attained criticality in November 1998, and the reactor outlet temperature reached 850°C in December 2001, and 950°C in June 2004, both world firsts.
