Defining initiating events for purposes of probabilistic safety assessment

Technical Report:

Abstract

This document is primarily directed towards technical staff involved in the performance or review of plant specific Probabilistic Safety Assessment (PSA). It highlights different approaches and provides typical examples useful for defining the Initiating Events (IE). The document also includes the generic initiating event database, containing about 300 records taken from about 30 plant specific PSAs. In addition to its usefulness during the actual performance of a PSA, the generic IE database is of the utmost importance for peer reviews of PSAs, such as the IAEA`s International Peer Review Service (IPERS) where reference to studies on similar NPPs is needed. 60 refs, figs and tabs.
