High Temperature Engineering Test Reactor (HTTR) of high temperature gas-cooled reactor at Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) achieved the reactor outlet coolant temperature of 950°C for the first time in the world at Apr. 19, 2004. To ensure the thermal integrity of fuel in high temperature test operation, it is necessary that fuel temperature is designed appropriately by fuel temperature designing method, and that estimated maximum fuel temperature is lower than the thermal limit temperature. In this report, by constructing newly a realistic core-shape representing model, the current fuel temperature estimation model is improved. Moreover fuel temperature in high-temperature test operation is estimated with the newly-constructed model, and it is confirmed that estimated maximum fuel temperature in high temperature test operation is lower than the thermal limit temperature.
