Part of the ISPRA Courses book series (ISPA, volume 6)


A methodology for the safety assessment of the software of protection systems using dynamic reliability is presented.

It includes a conceptual framework with appropriate definitions and acceptance criteria together with a description of the tools available to implement the technique. The approach is illustrated via an example.
