Report Title:Nuclear Seminar on Nuclear Automation, 5-7 April 2004 in Oskarshamn, Sweden
Activity Acronym:
Authors:Karl-Erik Eriksson (ed.)
Abstract:A general conclusion from several of the presentation is that the I&C platform and the application need their own development and verification and validation processes. A confidence in the platform and the application can then be built on the collection of information both from the design process and from the product. A structuring of the design and verification and validation processes in terms of claims of dependability and evidence to support these claims may help in ensuring a smooth licensing process. From the seminar some general recommendations can be made. Firstly it seems necessary to develop a better understanding of the best ways for interactions between the utilities and the vendors in agreeing on the scope of the modernisation projects. A long term view in terms of a development plan for the power plants may help the utilities to arrive at an internal agreement on the scope for forthcoming modernisations. Furthermore the licensing process seems to need some clarifications to avoid surprises. The international projects presented at the seminar seem to provide some clarifications in this respect. More generally there are needs for additional methods and tools for the verification and validation process on which research organisations and universities are working.
