Performance Improvements for Electrical Power Plants: Designing-in the Concept of Availability
Availability plays an increasing role in operation and design of nuclear plants. This paper proposes means to build availability of a new plant right from the start of the design process. The emphasis is put on two tools, one for allocation and one for evaluation of availability. Finally, the main aspects of future developments are presented.
