IEC 62118 pdf download Nuclear reactor instrumentation – Pressurized water reactor (PWR) of VVER design – Monitoring adequate cooling within the core during shutdown
1 Scope and object
This International Standard applies to pressurized water reactors (PWRs) of VVER designwith configurations similar to those shown in figures 1 and 2, and presents the requirementsfor monitoring adequate cooling within the core during hot and cold shutdown conditions.Annex B provides more information on vVER operating states.
Good international practices to be used when designing new or upgrading existing corecooling monitors for VVER systems are summarized in this standard.This standard does notconsider the design details of the different VVER technological systems designs,except to theextent that the design affects the monitoring of core cooling.
Requirements are given for core cooling monitoring instrumentation to ensure the safeoperation of VVERs during abnormal operation and during and after design basis accidents(DBA). Requirements for core cooling monitoring during conditions beyond a DBA,whichcould be a specific national requirement or consideration, are not covered here.
The core cooling monitoring instrumentation has to function under widely different conditions.The circumstances underwhich this instrumentation needs to function are described.Descriptions of diverse measuring principles and suitable devices are given along withrequirements for the following:
operational conditions;. installation;
. operator displays;
testing, calibration and maintenance;equipment qualification;
