Advanced Methods for Safety Assessment and Optimization of NPP Maintenance - Summary report of the Workshop held at the Institute for Energy, EC-JRC, Petten, Netherlands on 2-5 October, 2006

Funded under: FP6-JRC

Abstract

This report presents the technical summary of the presentations and panel discussions in relation to the workshop on �Advanced Methods for Safety Assessment and Optimization of NPP Maintenance� which was organized in Petten (EC/JRC-IE premises) on October 2-5, 2006 by the JRC-IE (SENUF network), and by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Nuclear Safety/Technical Cooperation Dept. The workshop addressed the application of advanced probabilistic methods to the optimisation of the maintenance programmes at the European NPPs.
The conclusions of the workshop are presented in two main areas: (a) Plant specific PSA models and techniques to optimize NPP maintenance planning and scheduling, b) Equipment reliability analysis as function of the MS&I programs.
The workshop also identified some issues that deserve additional research effort and international support before a broad application of the RCM is proposed to the EU Members.
