ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF NUCLEAR SAFETY SYSTEMS VS THE OPERATOR TIME CONSTRAINTS
This paper describes the basic features of a new concept of incident simulator, System Response Analyser (SRA), which is being developed within the CEC - JRC research program on Reactor Safety and which is focused on the problem of management of safety systems in emergency conditions. The results obtained in the case of the Auxiliary Feedwater System of Paluel Nuclear Power Plant show that SRA is particularly valid in the fields of design and reliability, thanks to the self-contained evaluation of the physical transient response of the system combined with human actions and to the easily performed identification of the operator time constraints for the appropriate management of the system. Indeed, the study of the effects of the operator interventions, even if based on a simple parametrical model for the decision making process, enhance the potentiality of the proposed technique.
