Abstract

V&V (Verification and Validation) is an important way to assure the safety and reliability of software. Requirement management plays a critical role through the whole process of V&V. Based on the practice on Generation II + pressurized water reactor named CPR1000, this paper establishes requirement management scheme for digital RPS (Reactor Protection System) software V&V, the scheme is applied in typical DCS (Digital Control System) V&V project of nuclear power plant, and enhances the trace efficiency. The successful engineering practice provides efficient requirement management reference for succeed nuclear DCS devices development and test projects.
