This paper analyses the operational aspects of a temperature Gas Reactor using direct Helium Cycle for power conversion. As an engineering project, the complexity in the operational aspects of HTGR’s is more severe than that of its design and installation. Its transient stability is achieved in a different manner compared to conventional power plants. An efficient and steady operation is a must for its successful realization. The paper looks into the start-up, shutdown and part load performance of helium power conversion system. The study is based on an ongoing developmental project in South Africa called Pebble Bed Modular Reactor (PBMR).
