SC-3 Operations, Maintenance, Aging, Testing and Reliability

Welcome to the IEEE NPEC SC-3 Website!
Subcommittee 3 is responsible for the NPEC standards related to the treatment of matters relating to the operations, maintenance, aging monitoring, and surveillance testing, and the treatment of all matters relating to analysis of the reliability of electrical and electronic systems and equipment for nuclear power generating stations and facilities. Included is the development of system requirements and methods for monitoring, maintaining, and testing of safety-significant equipment during construction, plant startup and operation, the coordination of nuclear standards, the sponsorship of technical sessions, the preparation of and review of technical papers, the dissemination of information to the industry on new developments and the advancement of nuclear engineering with students and educational institutions.

The following NPEC Qualification Standards are maintained by SC-3.  WG internal documents are maintained within iMeet Central.  Please contact the WG chair if you require access to iMeet Central.  If you have forgotten our access credentials, contact the Subcommittee vice-chair for assistance.
