Design Profile Description

Source: General Atomics
The TRIGA Power System (TPS) is an integral PWR design from General Atomics (GA) that is based on GA’s TRIGA research reactor, of which 66 units have been installed around the world. The TPS is designed for a power level of 64 MWt and 16.4 MWe. This design’s fuel requires an enrichment of 19.9%. Work on this reactor design started in the mid-1980s, but there are no recent developments concerning this SMR concept. General Atomics, in fact, has been focused more recently on its high temperature, gas-cooled SMR designs (i.e. GT-MHR and EM2).
