Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor (PFBR) is a 500 MWe liquid metal cooled fast breeder reactor under construction at Kalpakkam, India. [1] The Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR) is responsible for the design of this reactor. The results of the review as well as comments and opinions were collected and complied, and they are further revised based on the discussions made at the review meeting. The designation “Fast Reactor” differentiates it from a “Fast Breeder Reactor’ by the absence of a Pu breeding blanket, essentially making it a Pu actinide burner. The Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor (PFBR) is a 500 MWe fast breeder nuclear reactor presently being constructed at the Madras Atomic Power Station in Kalpakkam, India. ABSTRACT. The Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor has been designed based on FBTR experience. MWe “Fast Reactor” designated as the BN-800 be added as a fourth unit at its reactor site at Byelorask. Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor ‘Monju’”, which was sent to the nine international experts in advance for their review. The design of this reactor was started in the 1980s, as a prototype for a 600 MW FBR. The reactor is located at Каlраккаm, close to the 2 х220 MWe PHWR units of Madras Atomic Power Station(MAPS). Vielfache Bauverzögerungen führten zu immer neuen Ankündigungen für den Zeitpunkt der Inbetriebnahme. Vibration analysis of the reactor assembly components of 500 MWe Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor (PFBR) is presented. It was expected to start up about the end of 2010 and produce power in 2011, but this schedule was delayed significantly. The Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR) is responsible for the design of this reactor. The 500 MWe Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor (PFBR) started construction in 2004 at Kalpakkam near Madras.

The design is validated by large amount of R&D carried out in various disciplines. Erste Entwürfe stammen aus den 1980er Jahren, der Bau begann im Jahr 2004, die Inbetriebnahme war ursprünglich für das Jahr 2010 vorgesehen. Main consideration to standardise the basic design in short time that will be the forerunner of a series of units to follow.
