Benchmark Exercise on Safety Evaluation of Computer Based Systems (BE-SECBS Project), Summary Report

Project ID: FIKS-CT-2000-00054
Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C

Abstract

The project's primary target is a comparative evaluation of existing safety critical computer based systems assessment methodologies in use in the nuclear field among regulators and technical support organizations in EU Member States.
Framatome ANP provided a reference case study of a hypothetical reactor protection system, including the requirements and functional specification of a limited number of safety functions that were selected by the project partners. The case study comprised a limited part of a complete safety I&C modernization project, based on KWU Konvoi plants. The main task of the case study was to execute and document the design process for a set of selected safety I&C functions. Engineering was performed by using the tools of the TELEPERM XS system platform, which has been qualified for safety I&C applications in NPPs. Due to limited scope, some parts of a real project were not performed.
