The 10 MW High Temperature Gas-cooled Reactor-Test Module (HTR-10), which was designed, constructed and operated by the Institute of Nuclear and New Energy Technology (INET) of Tsinghua University, is the first High Temperature Gas-cooled Reactor (HTGR) in China. Stepping into the commissioning phase in April, 2000, the HTR-10 attained the first criticality in December, 2000 and achieved its full power operation in January, 2003. Up to now, the HTR-10 has been successfully operated for more than ten years with different power levels. During the relatively long period of commissioning and operation, various kinds of tests were carried out on this reactor. Within the scope of this paper, the commissioning stage, the operation history and the test implementation of the HTR-10 are briefly summarized.

At this stage, the HTR-10 is the only pebble bed HTGR under operation in the world, so the measured data from this reactor are extremely valuable for verifying the inherent safety features incorporated in small modular HTGRs as well as for testing the computer programs employed in the HTGR design process. With the purpose of ensuring the code credibility, validation work using the HTR-10 operation and test data has been performed for several years in INET. What is more, these data were partly shared with different countries through some collaborative research projects related to code development and assessment. In this paper, progress of the HTR-10 measured data utilization is reviewed. Meanwhile, existing problems observed from the code-to-test as well as code-to-code comparisons are pointed out. In addition, possible reasons of such problems are discussed in detail.
