Nuclear Power Institute of China (NPIC) has started the investigation on supercritical carbon dioxide (S-CO2) power cycles since 2011. The aim of this project is to understand the feasibility and economics of coupling S-CO2 power cycle with Gen IV nuclear reactors, industrial waste heat, solar power, and so on. Up to now, the pre-concept design, economics analyses, and feasibility evaluation has been accomplished. The focus in the next step is the technology demonstrations by constructing and testing an integral test loop of S-CO2 Brayton cycle. With subcontractors and collaborators from China and UK, NPIC starts the design of a MWe scale Integral Test Loop in mid-2015. This paper presents some preliminary design results on this Integral Test Loop, including cycle layouts, design heat balance, and components considerations. Future planning on SCO2 power cycle research and development in NPIC is discussed.
