Project of Khmelnitsky NPP Unit 1 In-Depth Safety Assessment: Probabilistic Safety Analysis (PSA) of Internal Initiators – Phases 2&3

Period: 2006-2007

Customer: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), USA

Beneficiary: SS Khmelnitsky NPP

The following activities were performed within the project framework:

  • final collection and correction of databases on the power unit’s systems;
  • development of a list and detailed calculation scenarios for the additional thermal and hydraulic calculations regarding substantiation of PSA success criteria and determination of personnel time-response characteristics;
  • partial analysis of systems (development of fault trees);
  • development and approval of the Report ‘Technology Transfer’;
  • completion and agreement of the Report ‘Response to the Peer Review Comments’;
  • assessing the results of the additional thermal and hydraulic calculations for KhNPP-1 PSA;
  • correction of success criteria and event trees (within the framework of developing a final report on PSA-1).
