Engineered Risk Control Systems and Performance (Nuclear)

The aim of this course is to provide an understanding of engineered safeguard systems and the need for performance requirements and standards, performance assurance and technical integrity verification schemes with a particular emphasis on the nuclear industry.


  • Engineered safeguard systems
  • Defining performance standards
  • Functional requirements
  • Availability, reliability and survivability
  • Interdependencies
  • Performance assurance and verification
  • Technical integrity assurance
  • Material selection
  • Design reviews
  • Fabrication tests, certification, etc.
  • Construction reviews and inspections
  • Commissioning tests
  • Preventative maintenance systems

At the end of the course you should be able to:

  1. Analyse a nuclear plant to logically deduce the relevant engineered safeguard systems
  2. Devise performance standards for nuclear safeguards
  3. Illustrate how engineered control systems contribute to technical integrity over the lifetime of the nuclear plant
