Abstract

In the field of nuclear safety an essential prerequisite of any successful Accident Management is the capability to assess the status of a nuclear power plant reliably at any given moment. This state-of-the-art report describes the research and development in progress in the different Member States of the European Union in the field of instrumentation and signal validation under accident conditions. It deals with extending the qualification of the instrumentation to severe accident conditions as well as with the behaviour of the instrumentation during the TMI-2 accident or with new measuring methods. New algorithms and methods to validate input signals or to estimate parameters are also described. This report also includes detailed information on the French approach to Accident Management, the German concept for post-accident monitoring and the monitoring strategy for Sizewell-B.
