PSA Technology as a Complementary Tool to Support Decision Making in Nuclear Safety, International Eugene Wigner Training Course on Research Reactor SafetyFunded under: FP6-JRC
The report provides a brief overview of overall framework of Probabilistic Safety Assessment (PSA) technology used in various applications to assess nuclear power plant (NPP) operational risk issues. Based on essential nuclear power engineering/safety background and philosophy behind NPP safety justification, main terms of quantitative risk assessment are discussed: basic aspects of Fault Tree (FT)/Event Tree (ET) construction, modelling for graphical/logical representation of accident sequences, Initiating Events (IE) selection, issues of consequences, data analysis and quantification of the model. Basic aspects of Risk Informed Decision Making (RIDM) concept are explained and discussed.
