IEEE/SNPTC Forum on Severe Accidents and Condition-Based Qualification

Time: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Address:Renaissance Shanghai Caohejing Hotel

地点:中国 上海,漕河泾万丽酒店(上海市徐汇区田林路397号,漕河泾高科技园区内)

With more than a dozen operating nuclear power plants and a large number of nuclear power plants under construction in China, the industry will soon realize a greater demand for Equipment Qualification (EQ) and the development of related technologies. As a result, Condition-based Qualification and Equipment Survivability under Severe Accidents is becoming increasingly important.
To meet this specific need of the industry, the State Nuclear Power Technology Corporation (SNPTC) together with IEEE Power & Energy Society/Nuclear Power Engineering Committee/Subcommittee 2 (NPEC/SC 2) on Qualification are holding a forum on Condition-based Qualification and Severe Accidents. This topic is particularly relevant in light of the Fukushima accident, as the concerns on the survivability of equipment under severe accidents are being emphasized more, especially when designing and qualifying new plants.
The forum will discuss state of the art improved methods for EQ, which are intended to increase confidence in equipment performance and provide a more reliable and flexible way of tracking degradation. Operating plants are required to carry out aging management for the entire life cycle of NPPs to manage the condition of the operating equipment and for life extension efforts, while new plants are considering the use of Condition-based Qualification at the initial EQ stage.
State Nuclear Power Technology Corporation (SNPTC) is the promoter of AP1000 technology and the developer of standard CAP1000 design and the state-of-the-art GIII passive plant CAP1400 design.
This forum is open to all Power & Energy members but will be of greatest value to the nuclear power-oriented engineer with experience with such requirements, but it can also be an aid to engineers, consultants, manufacturers or regulators of the nuclear power industry.

Following the forum, NPEC/SC 2 will also be holding their Subcommittee meeting. 

A preliminary agenda for the Condition-based Qualification and Severe Accidents forum and the NPEC/SC 2 Subcommittee meetings is as follows:
