RadICS Platform based PHT Pump Motor Speed Measuring Devices for Embalse Nuclear Power Plant (NPP), Argentina

RadICS Platform Components were successfully applied in the development of PHT Pump Motor Speed Measuring Devices to be used in the implementation of pump low speed trip in the Shutdown Sytem 2 (SDS2) of the Embalse Nuclear Power Plant (Candu Energy Inc.) in Argentina. The life-time extension project is conducted by the Argentine utility NA-SA (Nucleoelectrica S. A.) to extend the operating life-time of their Candu-6 reactor. The Signal Processing Unit (SPU) was designed using Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technology...

RadICS Platform based Window Alarm Annunciators for Embalse Nuclear Power Plant (NPP), Argentina

Window Alarm Annunciators (WAA) designed on RadICS Platform and manufactured for their client, Candu Energy Inc., to replace the obsolete equipment presently installed in the Embalse Nuclear Power Plant in Argentina, as part of their life-time extension project. The life-time extension project is conducted by the Argentine utility NA-SA (Nucleoelectrica S. A.) to extend the operating life-time of their Candu-6 reactor. WAAs were designed to use in the Main Control Room (MCR) and Secondary Control Area (SCA) to generate alarms associated...

Development and Qualification of RadICS Test Specimen (RTS) to support the licensing of RadICS platform in the U.S.

Project Description The scope of the RadICS Test Specimen (RTS) Project included the development and qualification of Test Specimen (QTS) to support the licensing of RadICS platform in the U.S. The QTS is safety-related equipment which was designed based on the RadICS Platform’s modules (Optical Communication Module, Analog Inputs Module, Discrete Inputs Module, Analog Outputs Module, Discrete Outputs Module, Logic Module) certified by exida as an IEC 61508:2010 Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 3 for single channel configuration. The RTS Project consisted...

I&C system of IEA-R1 Research Reactor, IPEN-CNEN institute (Sao Paulo, Brazil)

Project Description: On May 16-20, 2016 Factory Acceptance Tests of RadICS Platform - based Safety Systems Control Console SSCC-1 was held at PC RPC Radiy. Radiy engineers designed, manufactured and tested the Safety Systems Control Console SSCC-1, which included Neutron Flux Monitoring, Rod Control and Reactor Trip Systems according to customer specifications - Redetec / IPEN (Brazil). The IEA-R1 open-pool reactor was built by Babcock & Wilcox and was commissioned in 1957. Capable of producing  2-5 MW power, it is currently...

RadICS Platform FPGA-based I&C Testbed for Électricité de France (EdF)

Project Description: On October 20, 2014 the leasing contract was signed with EdF to provide EdF R&D with RadICS Platform FPGA-based I&C Testbed. The hardware of the RadICS Platform included a cabinet, power supply modules, platform chassis and modules (Logic Module, Discrete Inputs Module, Analog Inputs Module, Discrete Outputs Module, Analog Outputs Module) and test equipment (National Instruments). Services included application design and implementation onto the platform, installation of the platform at the EdF site, training and technical assistance. The project duration...
