Small Modular Lead-based Reactor (SMLR) has generated great interest in academic research all around the world due to its good safety characteristics and relatively high core outlet temperature. In this paper, a Combined Cooling Heating and Power (CCHP) system with usage of absorption heat pump, which couples with a SMLR, was proposed to fulfill the energy demands in remote areas. Thermodynamic analysis was implemented to improve the performance of the CCHP system based on SMLR. To meet the remote areas’ energy needs, the main parameters and mass flow rate of a 35 MWth SMLR design were analyzed. The SMLR CCHP with absorption heat pump system can provide electric power 12.5MWe, heating 9.5MWh, and cooling 2.54MWc. The total energy utilization efficiency of the system can be 69.12 %. This work can provide a reference in the design and optimization of the CCHP system to meet the energy demands in the remote areas.
