At present, a series of engineering problems are encountered in NPPs (Nuclear Power Plants) built or under building, such as cable channel overload, cable cost increase and cable layout difficulty. Optimization of Layout Solution of I&C Cable Channel for digital NPP can eliminate the problems and improve the construction quality. The optimization can be realized by analysis and design of DCS layout in different islands, coordination layout between cable channel and equipment, and finally the cable channel layout solution under special circumstance. Based on the optimization of layout solution of I&C Cable Channel, the overload problem of I&C cable tray can effectively be controlled in NPP. Also the optimization can reduce cable cost to improve the reliability and economical efficiency for digital NPP. The economy and reliability of engineering construction can be integrally increased.
