NRC Experience: Oversight of the First Two Integrated System Validation Tests of New Reactor Control Room

Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation

Integrated system validation is a test that has been in the human factors guidance for years (NUREG-0711), however, full-scope application of this testing has only occurred recently for the first time for the AP1000 design, and subsequently for the NuScale design.  The purpose of this presentation is to illustrate the NRC experience with oversight of this expensive and complex testing and briefly describe some planned improvements based on recent experience.
