HFC 2019 NPIC&HMIT Meeting Participation

HFC has participated in the 2019 NPIC&HMIT meeting that was held in Orlando, FL from February 9-14, 2019. NPIC&HMIT is the de facto forum for nuclear instrumentation and control (I&C) and human factors engineering (HFE) professionals to meet with leaders in industry and academia, discover the state of the technology, exchange information, and discuss future directions. At the meeting, HFC has presented a paper titled "Qualification of Logic Conversion Tools for Safety Applications", which provides approaches for qualifying new tools and pre-developed third-party tools in reference to HFC's One-Step automatic logic translation tool. Doosan Nuclear Business Group and HFC co-presented a paper titled "Design and Implementation of a Modern Rod Control System (RCS)". This modern RCS has replaced the older generation RCS in all South Korean twenty-four (24) Pressurized Water Reactors (PWRs) owned by Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power (KHNP). In its ten (10) years of operating history, the modernized RCS has not experienced a Single Point of Vulnerability (SPV), which further confirms its robust design and successful implementation.
