Accident analysis and management focusses on understanding the causes and consequences of an accident at a nuclear facility, and on how to manage an accident through prevention and mitigation.
CANDU Owners Group (COG) and the NEA have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to co-operate in research and activities related to pressurised heavy water reactor (PHWR) technology.
The NEA Working Group on Electrical Power Systems (WGELEC) and the IAEA organised a joint workshop on the “Current Implementation Status of Measures to Manage Open Phase Conditions in Electrical Powe...
Nuclear facilities rely on a robust electrical system to power primary and back-up systems required to safely respond to a wide variety of challenging events.
Reactor components and structures degrade by exposure to heat, environmental conditions and radiation. It is vital to understand ageing processes to ensure that safety criteria continue to be met.
Risk assessments are used to determine the probability of harmful events at a nuclear plant. They are valuable for determining the relative benefit and better selection of safety enhancements.
The fuel for a nuclear reactor is both the source of the fission energy that is used to produce electricity and the source of radioactive material during an accident.
The facilities associated with nuclear fuel from mining to fabrication to post-irradiation management have some specific safety concerns that are different from those of nuclear reactors.
