379-1988 - IEEE Standard Application of the Single-Failure Criterion to Nuclear Power Generating Station Safety Systems

Description: The document covers the application of the single-failure criterion to the electrical power, instrumentation, and control portions of nuclear power generating station safety systems. The purpose is to interpret and provide guidance in the application of the single failure criterion, discuss failures, and present an acceptable method of single-failure analysis. It is not the function of this standard to identify where the single-failure criterion is to be applied or to force compliance on any system; however, in those cases where the single-failure criterion has been invoked, this standard establishes the requirements for its application.
