Abstract in different language: The TEPLATOR is an innovative solution for district heating using nuclear energy. It is a special thermal reactor with specific arrangement of the reactor core with 55 fuel assemblies which is moderated and cooled by heavy water and operated at atmospheric pressure with low output temperatures compared to the commercial nuclear power plants. The TEPLATOR DEMO is designed for using irradiated fuel from LWR reactors. In case that the irradiated fuel is not available in terms of high burnup or other reasons, there is a possibility to use SEU or natural uranium as a fuel. This solution is suitable because of the favourable price of natural uranium. This article focuses on development of the alternative suitable fuel for the TEPLATOR, which is based on irradiated fuel reactor core arrangement. It is mainly concerned with neutronic development of the fuel assemblies with appropriate parameters for this application. This article contains various fuel modifications with different time of operation. All calculations were performed by the Monte Carlo code Serpent.
