BS IEC 61888 pdf download Nuclear power plants — Instrumentation important to safety — Determination and maintenance of trip setpoints
1 scope
This standard defines the requirements for assuring that automatic setpoints for nuclearsafety system instrumentation (as defined in clause 3), are established and maintained withinspecified limits in nuclear power plants and nuclear reactor facilities.
2 Normative references
The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document.For dated references, only the edition cited applies.For undated references, the latest editionof the referenced document (including any amendments) applies.

For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply.
NOTE Additional definitions related to instrumentation terminology may be found in lEC 60050-394.
allowable value
a limit value that the trip setpoint may have when tested periodically, beyond whichappropriate action shall be taken
analytical limit (of setpoint)
limit of a measured or calculated variable established by the safety analysis to ensure thata safety limit is not exceeded. The margin between the analytical limit (of the setpoint) andthe safety limit allows to take into account:
– the response time of the instrument channel,
– the range of transients due to the considered accident.
as found
the condition in which a channel, or portion of a channel, is found after a period of operation and before recalibration (if necessary)
as left
the condition in which a channel, or portion of a channel, is left after calibration or final setpoint device setpoint verification
an undesired change in output over a period of time where change is unrelated to the input,environment, or load
the algebraic difference between the indication and the ideal value of the measured signal
final setpoint device
a component, or assembly of components, that provides input to the process voting logic for actuated equipment
NOTE Examples of final setpoint devices are bistables, relays, pressure switches, and level switches.

5 Determination of setpoints
Trip setpoints in nuclear safety system instruments shall be selected to provide sufficient allowance between the trip setpoint and the analytical limit to account for uncertainties. Detailed requirements for safety system instrument setpoint relationships are given in the following clauses, as illustrated in figure 1 .
