Nuclear Academy - PSA Part 2

Low Power and Shutdown Level 1 PSA, Internal and External Hazards, Level 2 and 3 PSA

The purpose of this course is to give participants an introduction to specific PSA topics such as low power and shutdown PSA, internal hazards, external hazards, Level 2 and Level 3 PSA. The course is tailored to individuals with some experience in PSA (PSA Part 1 or working experience). The lectures combine theory with practical examples, and there are exercises using RiskSpectrum® PSA.

Plant Operating States

Low Power and Shutdown PSA

Introduction to Internal Hazards PSA eg Fire and Flooding

Introduction to External hazards PSA eg Seismic, Aircraft

Crash and non- Seismic hazards

Level 2 PSA

  • Interface Level 1 and 2 PSA
  • Plant damage states
