Data Systems & Solutions use SCADE to develop the N4 Reactor Protection System
Data Systems & Solutions – Nuclear Power Plant Control
In DS&S (former Schneider Electric) and Framatome, teams have more than 15 years of experience in using SCADE approach for the development of Instrumentation & Control systems for nuclear power plants.
SCADE has been used in particular to develop the N4 Reactor Protection System and refurbish the Power Measurement System of Fessenheim and Bugey nuclear power plants, the first 900 megawatts French power nuclear reactors.
200K LoC code were automatically generated from 1,200 design views for the N4 Reactor Protection System, while the error ratio remaining during the test phases was cut down by a factor of 10. The designers found increased productivity and resultant reduction in development time with the use of SCADE.
