The methods of radioactive source term analysis are introduced in detail for the modular high temperature gas cooled reactor in China. Radioactive fission products and activation products produced in the reactor are described. For fission products, the emphasis is on the process from production through release to the environment for noble gas, iodine and long-lived metallic nuclides. For activation products, it mainly introduces the behaviors of H-3 and C-14. Especially the permeation process from primary circuit to secondary circuit is described for H-3. Using the preliminary design parameters of demonstration HTGR in China, basic prediction of radioactive source term is done and the results are given.
