Abstract

Digital instrumentation and control (I&C) systems play an important role in the operation of nuclear power plants. Digital instrumentation and control (I&C) systems play an important role in the operation of nuclear power plants. The safety and reliability analysis of such systems is challenging, and a range of techniques is used for analysing the systems both probabilistically and deterministically. We have focused on the use of two different analysis approaches: model checking and probabilistic risk assessment (PRA).
