An Advanced Gas-cooled Reactor (AGR) is a type of nuclear reactor designed and operated in the United Kingdom. These are the second generation of British gas-cooled reactors, using graphite as the neutron moderator and carbon dioxide as coolant.

They have been the backbone of the UK's nuclear generation fleet since the s. Gas-cooled reactors with emphasis on advanced systems: proceedings of a symposium in gas-cooled reactors with emphasis on advanced systems jointly organized by the International Atomic Energy Agency and the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency and held in Jülich, October A gas-cooled reactor (GCR) is a nuclear reactor that uses graphite as a neutron moderator and carbon dioxide as coolant.

Although there are many other types of reactor cooled by gas, the terms GCR and to a lesser extent gas cooled reactor are particularly used to refer to this type of reactor. Gas-cooled reactors have been in operation for many years.

In the United Kingdom, nuclear electricity is mostly generated in CO 2-cooled Magnox and Advanced Gas-Cooled Reactors (AGRs). Other countries also have pursued development of high-temperature reactors (HTGRs) with helium as coolant, and graphite as moderator.

Publication: Nuclear Instruments and Methods, VolumeIssue 2, p. Jul 10,  · Gas cooled reactors currently represent about three per cent of the total number of reactors in commercial operation worldwide.

These are all advanced carbon-dioxide gas cooled reactors in the United Kingdom that will be phased out around the mids. The newer Advanced Gas Cooled (AGR) Reactors use a slightly enriched uranium dioxide clad with stainless steel. Carbon dioxide is the coolant gas used.

Two key advantages of this design are: higher operating temperature with a higher thermal efficiency; not susceptible to accidents of the type possible with water cooled/moderated reactors. The Advanced Gas Reactor (AGR) represents the generation II of British Gas-Cooled Reactors, developed from the earlier generation I Magnox reactor design (see “Magnox Design” on page 7) of gas-cooled reactors.

In the UK there are currently seven AGR nuclear power stations (5 in England and 2 in Scotland) each with two operating reactors.

The advanced gas-cooled reactor (AGR) was developed in the United Kingdom (UK) as a successor to the Magnox gas-cooled reactor. (See Magnox Power Station.)As the aim was to operate at higher fuel, cladding and gas temperatures, it was necessary to change both material and design.

Energy, recommending that Japan should proceed with the development of more advanced technologies for the future, in parallel with existing nuclear systems.

The Long-term Program emphasized that the HTGR is considered as one of the most promising nuclear reactors to improve the economy and enhance the application of nuclear energy. NUCLEAR ENERGY MATERIALS AND REACTORS - Vol. II - Advanced Gas Cooled Reactors - Tim McKeen ©Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS) Summary There are several different classifications of nuclear reactors in operation and in design.

The major differences in design generally include the reactor core layout, the fuel. The history of gas-cooled fast reactors (GFRs) dates back to the early years of nuclear technology development efforts. Thus emphasis in this chapter is placed on such differences and the need for innovative approaches.

The molten salt fast reactor, based on a fast spectrum and seen as a long-term alternative to solid-fueled fast reactors. Early on, gas cooling was mostly used in graphite moderated reactors fueled with natural uranium, the British Magnox, and the French natural uranium graphite gas (NUGG).

The availability of low enriched uranium fuel allowed the British to develop the advanced gas-cooled reactor as a.
