Configuration management has been clearly understood, but there is yet no clear roadmap on how to plan and implement configuration management. The IAEA Safety Standard Safety of Nuclear power Plants: Operation [1] includes many requirements related to plant configuration. These requirements deal with documentation ofFile Size: KB.

Description. This publication provides advice on the application of configuration management (CM) processes in nuclear power plants (NPPs). Taking into account that the concept of CM processes is implemented in different ways in the nuclear industry, it underlines the importance of a consistent approach to CM in operating NPPs, especially for those with long term operation.

The Shuttle Challenger explosion was a configuration management issue. The bridge over the Tacoma Narrows nicknamed “Galloping Gertie” had a configuration management (CM) issue. Balconies that have collapsed and soccer stadium stands that have failed all can be tied to poor configuration control issues.

In the nuclear power industry we have wrestled with configuration management [ ]. The Institute of Nuclear Power Operations (INPO) assesses a utility’s configuration management practices as a measure of the utility’s overall controls and effectiveness. INPO sees configuration management as a core process that supports safe operations, maintenance, supply chain and design control, and expects new plants to have anFile Size: KB.

In Part 1 and Part 2 of this series of articles on the importance of configuration management in new plants, an argument has been made for the importance of a well developed CM program and tools to assure success in the design and construction of the next generation of nuclear plants.

Also the importance of a well defined CM policy as a foundation was discussed including the leadership role of. management plans for digital computer software used in the safety systems of nuclear power plants. Configuration Management in Nuclear Power Plants book Rules and Regulations. The regulatory framework the NRC has established for nuclear power plants consists of a number of regulations and supporting guidelines applicable to configuration management plans for computer software.

Since the Fukushima accident innuclear safety has emerged as a very important political and social issue. Under this circumstance, the importance of configuration management (CM) is emphasized in order to ensure the reliability and safety of facility.

However, configuration management (CM) is still in its conceptual stage in the nuclear industry due to the ambiguity of CM definitions Cited by: 1. @article{osti_, title = {Design basis reconstitution and configuration management of nuclear power plants}, author = {Smith, P R}, abstractNote = {The major design requirements of nuclear power plant components, systems, and structures are found in the plant's licensing commitments documented in the Final Safety Analysis Report and in the technical specification commitments of the plant.

First, a brief introduction of FFPP fundamentals and con. safety and reliability of nuclear power plants (NPPs) have been continuously made.

As one such e ort, the importance of configuration management [1] has been emphasized. The concept of configuration management (CM) began by the US Department of Defense in the s [2]. The CM for nuclear power plants (NPPs) is generally defined as a process of. Abstract. This book details the origins, development, studies, design features, and operational experience of nuclear steam generators.

The first part details the history of steam generation, from its origins to its use in power generation and particularly the nuclear power plants. Get this from a library.

Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation. Division of Licensee Performance and Quality. In response to rising consumer demands for electrical power, the United States (US) utility industry is currently building dozens of new nuclear plants and planning an additional more than one-hundred.

Because such construction endeavors are expensive, complex, uncertain, and prone to schedule and cost overruns, the utility companies need a process for effectively their construction efforts. Abstract.

The legal framework currently in existence in the nuclear industry holds the operating company solely responsible for the safety of design and operation. The operator is also the one liable for third party damages in case of an accident. The nature of nuclear power File Size: KB. The power industry and regulators recognize that an automated, integrated and interoperable configuration management capability must be established to maintain consistency between the design requirements and facility configuration documentation to ensure the ability to document and maintain compliance with a plant's Nuclear Regulatory.

Nuclear plants have special asset management needs, given the level of their safety, reliability, and regulatory requirements.

Asset management means different things to different people. A nuclear power plant (nuclear power station) looks like a standard thermal power station with one heat source in the nuclear power plant is a nuclear is typical in all conventional thermal power stations the heat is used to generate steam which drives a steam turbine connected to a generator which produces electricity.

Inthe US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) did the first study regarding the probabilities and consequences of severe reactor accidents in commercial nuclear power plants. This study was called the Reactor Safety Study that could be implemented in nuclear power plants such as the one shown in Fig.

From its beginnings in the early s, the nuclear power industry and the government institutions that support and regulate it have brought nuclear generation to a position second only to coal as a source of electricity in the United States. By the end ofthe United States had commercial.
