The complex of containment monitoring systems (CCMS) is designed to monitor the condition of containment at NPP power units during commissioning, after repair, and continuously throughout the entire service life of NPP. CCMS provides for monitoring of the containment stress-strain state, the temperature of the containment building structures during design basis accidents and overpressure tests.
The purpose of creating CCMS is to improve the operation reliability of NPP containment monitoring systems and, as a result, to enhance the level of nuclear and radiation safety of power units through modernization of the systems.
CCMS developed by "Kontrolpribor" JSC, is a new generation of equipment, as it applies state-of-the-art high-tech solutions that assure high reliability and long period of NPP operation. The development is an innovation, it incorporates several systems that can work both in a complex and separately.
CCMS promptly processes information received from the sensors of local systems and outputs measurement results in the form of reports, reference information, graphs of the containment parameters in real time.
