Book Description :

The nuclear industry and the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (USNRC) have been working for several years on the development of an adequate process to guide the replacement of aging analog monitoring and control instrumentation in nuclear power plants with modern digital instrumentation without introducing off-setting safety problems. This book identifies criteria for the USNRC's review and acceptance of digital applications in nuclear power plants. It focuses on eight areas: software quality assurance, common-mode software failure potential, systems aspects of digital instrumentation and control technology, human factors and human-machine interfaces, safety and reliability assessment methods, dedication of commercial off-the-shelf hardware and software, the case-by-case licensing process, and the adequacy of technical infrastructure.

Book Description :

Small modular reactors (SMRs) are an advanced, safe type of nuclear reactor technology that are suitable for small and medium sized applications including both power and heat generation. In particular, their use as individual units or in combination to scale-up capacity offer benefits in terms of siting, installation, operation, lifecycle and economics in comparison to the development of larger nuclear plant for centralised electricity power grids. Interest has increased in the research and development of SMRs for both developing countries as well as such additional cogeneration options as industrial/chemical process heat, desalination and district heating, and hydrogen production. This book reviews key issues in their development as well as international R&D in the field. Gives an overview of small modular reactor technology Reviews the design characteristics of integral pressurized water reactors and focuses on reactor core and fuel technologies, key reactor system components, instrumentation and control, human-system interfaces and safety Considers the economics, financing, licensing, construction methods and hybrid energy systems of small modular reactors Describes SMR development activities worldwide, and concludes with a discussion of how SMR deployment can contribute to the growth of developing countries

Book Description :

A practical guide to increasing power plant operating uptime and profitability Power Plant Instrumentation and Controls provides a detailed description of power plant computer simulation and modern instrumentation and control systems that allow improvements in online power plant operating periods and thus profitability – minimizing unnecessary outages, maintenance activities, and downtime. The book reviews the many benefits of these different computer simulation programs, modern instrumentation, and control systems as they relate to plant safety, reliability, costs, efficiency, and emissions. It focuses on modern power generating plants – gas turbines, co-generation, and combined cycle plants. The book features a simulation program to determine the effects on turbine performance; turbine creep life; environmental emissions; and turbine life-cycle cost, revenue, and profitability of the following parameters: Variations in ambient temperature and pressure Inlet and exhaust losses Engine deterioration Different faults Power augmentation methods, including peak mode Water injection Control system performance, including proportional offset, integral windup, and trips Fuel type Variations in maintenance techniques and frequency Power generating plant outages are often due to unnecessary and improper maintenance activities and poor or outdated instrumentation and control systems, resulting in a significant reduction in profitability of power plant operation. This authoritative volume addresses these concerns and offers proven solutions. It is an essential next step to Kiameh's successful Power Generation Handbook and Power Plant Equipment Operation and Maintenance Guide. Power Plant Instrumentation and Controls includes Bar charts trending key turbine parameters Bar charts trending compressor characteristics and operating point during engine transients Tips for exporting simulated data to other software, such as Excel Exercises to illustrate use of simulation programs under different scenarios, including modern co-generation and combined-cycle plants In-depth coverage of smart instrumentation and advanced control systems used in modern power generating plants Details on selecting, commissioning, operating, diagnosing, and testing smart instrumentation, Distributed Control Systems, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, and all types of control valves, actuators, and positioners

Book Description :

Instrument Engineers' Handbook – Volume 3: Process Software and Digital Networks, Fourth Edition is the latest addition to an enduring collection that industrial automation (AT) professionals often refer to as the "bible." First published in 1970, the entire handbook is approximately 5,000 pages, designed as standalone volumes that cover the measurement (Volume 1), control (Volume 2), and software (Volume 3) aspects of automation. This fourth edition of the third volume provides an in-depth, state-of-the-art review of control software packages used in plant optimization, control, maintenance, and safety. Each updated volume of this renowned reference requires about ten years to prepare, so revised installments have been issued every decade, taking into account the numerous developments that occur from one publication to the next. Assessing the rapid evolution of automation and optimization in control systems used in all types of industrial plants, this book details the wired/wireless communications and software used. This includes the ever-increasing number of applications for intelligent instruments, enhanced networks, Internet use, virtual private networks, and integration of control systems with the main networks used by management, all of which operate in a linked global environment. Topics covered include: Advances in new displays, which help operators to more quickly assess and respond to plant conditions Software and networks that help monitor, control, and optimize industrial processes, to determine the efficiency, energy consumption, and profitability of operations Strategies to counteract changes in market conditions and energy and raw material costs Techniques to fortify the safety of plant operations and the security of digital communications systems This volume explores why the holistic approach to integrating process and enterprise networks is convenient and efficient, despite associated problems involving cyber and local network security, energy conservation, and other issues. It shows how firewalls must separate the business (IT) and the operation (automation technology, or AT) domains to guarantee the safe function of all industrial plants. This book illustrates how these concerns must be addressed using effective technical solutions and proper management policies and practices. Reinforcing the fact that all industrial control systems are, in general, critically interdependent, this handbook provides a wide range of software application examples from industries including: automotive, mining, renewable energy, steel, dairy, pharmaceutical, mineral processing, oil, gas, electric power, utility, and nuclear power.
