IEEE 379-2014 - IEEE Standard for Application of the Single-Failure Criterion to Nuclear Power Generating Station Safety Systems
Requirements for the application of the single-failure criterion to the electrical power, instrumentation, and control portions of nuclear power generating safety systems are provided in this standard.
Minimum functional and design criteria for the power, instrumentation, and control portions of nuclear power generating station safety systems are established. The criteria are to be applied to those systems required to protect the public health and safety by functioning to mitigate the consequences of design basis events. The intent is to promote appropriate practices for design and evaluation of safety system performance and reliability. Although the standard is limited to safety systems, many of the principles may have applicability to equipment provided for safe shutdown, post-accident monitoring display instrumentation, interlock features, or any other systems, structures, or equipment related to safety.
