ASAMPSA2 Project

Advanced Safety Assessment Methodologies: Level 2 PSA

The objective of this coordination action was to develop best practice guidelines for the performance of Level-2 PSA methodologies with a view to harmonization at EU level and allowing a meaningful and practical uncertainty evaluation in a Level-2 PSA.

Specific relationships with community in charge of nuclear reactor safety (utilities, safety authorities, vendors, and research or services companies) was established in order to define the current needs in terms of guidelines for level 2 PSA development and applications.

A technical group of level 2 PSA experts from project partners proposed guidelines for a limited-scope and a full-scope L2 PSA based on practical experience of each partner and international cooperation (especially SARNET).

Elaboration of these guidelines for operating plants was the main activity of this coordination action. This guideline was discussed with End-Users community and their opinion was taken into account in the final version.

The applicability of such a guideline for future reactor (Gen IV) was also examined.


ASAMPSA2 final guidelines are now available below:
