 Course Description

  The course provides an introduction to the fundamentals of plant risk assessment and the new issues of probabilistic risk assessment. Methods of risk model development and their quantification with software tools are included. The topics of the course cover plant risk model, its uncertainty analysis, and recently emerging technical issues such as passive system risk assessment, human reliability in advanced control rooms, digitalized plant risk assessment, software reliability assessment, and automatic diagnostic features. The more effective method to treat the dynamic changes of plant status in risk assessment model will also be provided.
The students are expected to investigate one of the risk models for new features or the new methodologies for risk assessment. This will enhance their understanding on the trends of the latest research and development of the risk assessment technologies.
