Standard Design Certification with Prototype Testing

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Standard design certification has been used over the past 20 years to develop NRC approval of Advanced Light Water Reactor (ALWR) designs. The standard design approval approach is intended to remove much of the uncertainty in the regulatory schedule prior to commitment of major funds to construction. The value of the approach has not been tested in the US but it has supported construction of ABWRs in Japan and Taiwan. Application of the approach to other types of advanced reactors may be possible but is not clear how this might be accomplished in the case of reactors with little or ... continued below

Description

Standard design certification has been used over the past 20 years to develop NRC approval of Advanced Light Water Reactor (ALWR) designs. The standard design approval approach is intended to remove much of the uncertainty in the regulatory schedule prior to commitment of major funds to construction. The value of the approach has not been tested in the US but it has supported construction of ABWRs in Japan and Taiwan. Application of the approach to other types of advanced reactors may be possible but is not clear how this might be accomplished in the case of reactors with little or no operating experience. This paper discusses an approach that was proposed by General Electric over 15 years ago and its possible application to GEN-IV reactors.
