  • Content informed by most recent precedents
  • Over 250 Surveillance Requirement (SR) Frequencies are being changed for each WBN unit*Justifies use of the WBN PRA for use in this risk

  • Variations are identified for changes not specifically addressed in TSTF-425l 5WBN Units 1 and 2 Adoption of TSTF-425 TVA SFCP Process
  • Follows the industry guidance document, NEI 04-10, "Risk-Informed Method for Control of Surveillance Frequencies"
  • The TVA SFCP process has been in effect for about three years at the Sequoyah Nuclear Power Plant (SQN)
  • SQN-specific implementation procedures will inform the implementation of the SFCP at WBN l 6WBN Units 1 and 2 Adoption of TSTF-425 PRA Technical Adequacy ReviewInternal Events with Internal Flooding PRA Model

-Progressive screening approach using the Fire Induced Vulnerability Evaluation (FIVE) from the docketed Individual Plant Examination of External Events (IPEEE) l 10WBN Units 1 and 2 Adoption of TSTF-425 Non-Modeled HazardsOther External Hazards

  • Screening results from the IPEEE for evaluations
  • SSCs credited in the IPEEE Other External Hazards Evaluation to allow the hazard to screen is qualitatively evaluated in the SFCP evaluation
  • External hazard screening was reviewed against the current as

-in-depth-assessment of plant shutdown configurations for impact on Key Safety Functions l 12WBN Units 1 and 2 Adoption of TSTF-425 Cumulative Risk

  • The cumulative risk analysis compares the change in risk for all previously approved Surveillance Test Interval extensions and the extension(s) under consideration that have not been rolled into the model of record*The delta from the baseline model represents the cumulative risk effect *Limits for Core Damage Frequency and Large Early Release Frequency are consistent with those limits given in NEI 04-10l 13WBN Units 1 and 2 Adoption of TSTF-425 Variations from TSTF

-425 Template

  • TSTF-425 is based on a markup of NUREG

-1431 Rev. 3.0 and 3.1*The WBN Technical Specifications are based on NUREG-1431 Rev. 1

  • This difference has resulted in numerous variations, most of which are administrative in nature
  • SR that are unique to WBN were screened against the criteria

of the model safety evaluation

  • None of the variations affect the model safety evaluation provided in the Federal Register Notice for TSTF-425l 14WBN Units 1 and 2 Adoption of TSTF-425 VariationsSR SR is currently performed every 31 days on a Staggered Test Basis
  • TSTF-425 removes the definition of "Staggered Test Basis"
  • TSTF-101 revised the Frequency to "In accordance with the InserviceTesting Program

"*NUREG-1431 Rev. 4 includes this change

  • TVA proposes to be consistent with the Improved Standard Technical Specifications and refer to the InserviceTesting Program l 15WBN Units 1 and 2 Adoption of TSTF-425 AFW System 3.7.5 SURVEILLANCE REQUIREMENTS SURVEILLANCE FREQUENCY SR Verify each AFW manual, power operated, and 31 days automatic valve in each water flow path.and in both steam supply flow paths to the steam turbine driven pump, that is not locked. sealed. or otherwise secured in position, is in the correct position.SR -------------------

  • The phrase "Once per 60 months" is being deleted, which is consistent with the SR Frequency being changed to the SFCP
  • This change is technically justified by IEEE 450
