The available plant instrumentation needs to be modelled in order to confirm that the event can be diagnosed and to check the steps in the procedure. g. instrumentation) not included in the model used, but potentially affecting the course of the accident, needs to be considered; in some cases, for instance, this can be accounted for by changing the input sequence of events in the code model considered or by assuming a range of variation for any relevant parameters. g. France), where the development of EOPs is based upon on a ‘state oriented approach’, which allows diagnosis using predefined state criteria.

However, not all the plant’s physical data will be well characterized, and some may be missing altogether; in this case the safety analyst and the designer would need jointly to agree on and record reasonable assumptions for the missing data. A quality assurance system needs to be in place so that when the data are finally developed they are cross-checked against these assumptions, and, if necessary, the safety analysis is redone. Other data (such as balance of plant data) may not be available at all much before project commitment.

In any case, in interpreting or adopting the results of accident management studies, attention needs be paid to the fact that there may be large uncertainties present. 6. ANALYSIS OF OPERATIONAL EVENTS Accident analysis is frequently used as a tool for a full understanding of events occurring during the operation of NPPs, as part of the feedback of operational experience. According to the IAEA’s Incident Reporting System, computer codes are used for analysis of about 10% of the events reported.
