Automatic Modeling of Fault Tree for NuIEEE Transactions on Power Electronics,Clear Power Safety I&C Configuration


The automatic modeling of fault tree for nuclear power safety I&C configuration is designed to meet the requirements of reducing the workload and improving the traceability during the nuclear power safety I&C system reliability assessment work. To complete the fault tree automatic modeling, the Visio Automation software technology is used to analyze the topology of the nuclear power safety I&C system hardware device and software function. The good result in practical implementations shows that the nuclear power safety I&C system fault tree modeling work is successfully simplified.
