Westinghouse has provided digital I&C upgrade systems to the fleet of nuclear power plants worldwide from the earliest introduction of such technology to power generation, covering a complete range of applications including systems for protection, control, information, & monitoring. In this context, plant computer and vibration/diagnostic systems have been integral to existing plant retrofits as well as new-build (e.g. AP1000® plants). Westinghouse has positioned a set of integrated technologies to facilitate increased efficiency and effectiveness of system engineers relative to maintaining a high level of equipment readiness and reliability by leveraging I&C technology. This presentation provides an overview survey of such technologies and product applications.
