Guide to the Collection and Presentation of Electrical, Electronic, Sensing Component, and Mechanical Equipment Reliability Data for Nuclear-Power Generating Stations
|Publication Date:||1 January 1984|
This guide applies to reliability data of electrical, electronic, sensing component, and mechanical equipment.
This guide is intended to establish one method of collecting and presenting reliability data for use in nuclear-power generating station reliability calculations as outlined in IEEE Std 352-1975, IEEE Guide for General Principles of Reliability Analysis of Nuclear-Power Generating Station Protection Systems. The data contained in Appendix D are intend- ed for the use of either nuclear systems reliability analysts or design engineers. The data are normally used by design engineers in models developed by the analysts. The objectives of such models and calculations are:
(1) Determination of system adequacy (fail- ure or success probability is only one measure of system adequacy; the designer should balance reliability with other system considerations)
(2) Evaluation of system design alternatives
(3) Evaluation of, or contribution to, the development of system test intervals, mainte- nance programs or operating procedures, or both
(4) To contribute to probabilistic risk assessment studies
