IEEE Standard Requirements for Reliability Analysis in the Design and Operation of Safety Systems for Nuclear Power Generating Stations and Other Nuclear Facilities

The minimum acceptable requirements for the performance of reliability analyses for safety systems when used to address the reliability considerations discussed in industry standards and guidelines are set forth in this standard. The requirement that a reliability analysis be performed does not originate with this standard. However, when reliability analysis is used to demonstrate compliance with reliability requirements, this standard describes an acceptable response to the requirements.

Guide for the Definition of Reliability Program Plans for Nuclear Generating Stations and Other Nuclear Facilities

This document provides guidelines for the definition of a reliability program at nuclear generating stations and other nuclear facilities. The document emphasizes reliability programs during the operating phase of such facilities; however, the general approach applies to all phases (e.g., design, construction, start-up, operating, and decommissioning) of the facility.

IEEE Guide for the Definition of Reliability Program Plans for Nuclear Generating Stations and Other Nuclear Facilities

Guidelines for the definition of a reliability program at nuclear generating stations and other nuclear facilities are provided. The document emphasizes reliability programs during the operating phase of such stations; however, the general approach applies to all phases of the nuclear power generating station life cycle (e.g., design, construction, start-up, operating, and decommissioning).

IEEE Guide for General Principles of Reliability Analysis of Nuclear Power Generating Station Safety Systems

The basic principles that are needed to conduct a reliability analysis of safety systems are provided for designers and operators of nuclear power plant safety systems and the concerned regulatory groups. By applying the principles given, systems may be analyzed, results may be compared with reliability objectives, and the basis for decisions may be suitably documented. The quantitative principles are applicable to the analysis of the effects of component failures on safety system reliability. Although they have their greatest value during the design phase, the principles are applicable during any phase of the systemu00d5s lifetime. They may also be applied during the preoperational phase or at any time during the normal lifetime of a system.

IEEE Standard Requirements for Reliability Analysis in the Design and Operation of Safety Systems for Nuclear Facilities

This standard sets forth minimum acceptable requisites for the performance of reliability analyses for safety-related systems of nuclear facilities when used to address the reliability requirements identified in regulations and other standards. The requirement that a reliability analysis be performed does not originate with this standard. However, when reliability analysis is used to demonstrate compliance with reliability requirements, this standard describes an acceptable response to the requirements.

IEEE Guide for the Definition of Reliability Program Plans for Nuclear Power Generating Stations

Guidelines for the definition of a reliability program at nuclear power generating stations are developed. Reliability programs during the operating phase of such stations are emphasized; however, the general approach applies to all phases of the nuclear power generating station life cycle (e.g., design, construction, start-up, operating, and decommissioning).
