Standard for Electric Penetration Assemblies in Containment Structures for Nuclear Power Generating Stations
|Publication Date:||1 January 1983|
This standard presents criteria to facilitate the determination of the features of design, construction, test, qualification and installation relative to the electric penetration assemblies of primary containments of the nuclear facilities that comply with the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission's Code of Federal Regulations (10CFR50).
Adherence to these criteria alone may not suffice for ensuring the health and safety of the public because it is the integrated performance of the structures, the fluid systems, the instrumentation, and the electric systems of the stations that establishes the consequences of accidents. Each applicant has the responsibility to assure himseft and others that this integrated performance is adequate.
The IEEE will maintain this standard current with the state of the technology. Comments on this standard and suggestions for the additional material that should be included are invited.
This standard prescribes the requirements for the design, construction, qualification, test, and installation of electric penetration assemblies in nuclear containment structures for stationary nuclear power generating stations. The requirements for external circuits which connect to penetration assemblies are beyond the scope of this standard. This standard does not include requirements for operation, maintenance, or periodic testing after installation.
