Software (Safe Shutdown Analysis): SAFE
SAFE (System Assurance & Fire Protection Engineering ) is an engineering software tool that automates and maintains a nuclear power plant’s 10 CFR 50 Appendix R Safe Shutdown Analysis. SAFE allows an engineer to determine the effects of a fire -- in any fire area, fire zone, building, room, or any other space suitable for the analysis -- on the ability to safely shut down the plant.
Utilities are taking major steps towards internally computerizing a variety of analyses in place of maintaining large quantities of paper that is soon out-of-date. SAFE is one component of EPM’s GENESIS Solution Suite® which is designed to effectively support nuclear power plants with 10 CFR 50 Appendix R compliance and to model and analyze other program assessments that are location driven (such as Environmental Qualification, Fire Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA), IPEEE FIVE, etc.) SAFE supports all of today's analysis requirements and presents information on an as-required basis and in a manner praised by the regulator.
