If your company manufactures commercial parts and sells the same parts to the nuclear industry as safety related parts, do those parts have to go through Commercial Grade Dedication? Download full text in PDF Download.
Adopting Modem Computer System Technology to Nuclear Power Plant Operations – ScienceDirect
Abstract Instrumentation, control and monitoring systems in eori nuclear power plants generally utilize analog technology. Keywords Nuclear power stations. The first question received is: You can always perform full CGD of the items, but this guidance allows the OEM to perform an acceptance process that is appropriate based on the advantages that the OEM has in regards to controlling the drawings and commercial process and receiving additional feedback from commercial uses of the items.
Instrumentation, control and monitoring systems in operating nuclear power plants generally utilize analog technology.
In Option B, the OEM manufactures commercial parts that are readily available outside of the nuclear industry and the commercial parts go through a final acceptance process when they are ordered as a nuclear safety related part.
As far as the dedication process goes, the requirements for it are somewhat loose. EPRI NP has been revised to eppri it easier to follow for the performance of commercial grade dedication.
EPRI NP Archives – Acuity Quality Assurance
This is a great question because it can be very difficult to find requirements for commercial grade dedication. It can be downloaded from the link below:.
These include items such as evaluating the effects of electromagnetic and radio frequency dpri on the system reliability, the need for software verification and validation, the review of abnormal conditions and events analysis ACEsas well as overall licensing aspects and the need to increase use of commercial-grade equipment to decrease cost, particularly for safety systems. Digital computer-based control systems provide improved functional control capabilities and the potential for communications with other plant control and monitoring systems.
As these systems age and become obsolete, utility companies are beginning to incorporate digital technology due to its proven record of high dpri in other industries, as well as wide spread availability.
The process is complete when all critical characteristics are verified and the epro is designated for use as a basic component. This paper will review these aspects of adopting digital control technology and improvements in plant monitoring and network communications to nuclear power plants.
Commercial grade dedication is called into eprri by 10CFR21both in the definitions and section Published by Elsevier Ltd.
