Abstract: This paper describes the technical and economic analyses of changes in the fuel component of prime electrical energy cost that are caused by implementing various versions of nuclear fuel design and nuclear fuel cycle schemes in WWER-440 power reactors.

Keywords: WWER reactors; nuclear power plants; NPP; nuclear energy; fuel components; technical analysis; economical analysis; risk assessment; economic efficiency loss; nuclear fuel design; nuclear fuel cycle; fuel costs; electricity costs.
