At present many companies from the energy sector have to follow new regulations and concerns three crucial aspects of energy production: the impact on the environment, the efficiency of energy conversion and the cost of energy. From a technical point of view, the most efficient technology available today for electricity generation is based on a gas turbine combined cycle. In the present paper, an analysis of environmentally friendly, high-temperature gas nuclear reactor system coupled with gas turbine combined cycle technology has been investigated. The analysed system is one of the most advanced concepts and allow electricity generation with the higher thermal efficiency than could be offered by any currently existing nuclear power plant technology. The results show that it is possible to achieve thermal efficiency for nuclear power plant higher than 50% which is not only more than could be produced by any modern nuclear plant but it is also more than could be offered by most of the traditional power plants.
