Implementation Status of Performance Demonstration for Nuclear Power Plant Piping Weld Ultrasonic Examination in Korea
The ASME B&PV code section XI adopted the performance demonstration requirements (Appendix VIII) for the ultrasonic examination of nuclear power plant piping weld in the 1989 winter addenda for the first time. Korea Electric Power Research Institute(KEPRI) and Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power Company(KHNP) finished developing Korean Performance Demonstration(KPD) system for the ultrasonic examination to apply pressurized light-water and pressurized heavy-water reactor power plants piping weld in accordance with ASME code section XI, appendix VIII on January 2004. KEPRI has been accomplishing the performance demonstration for nuclear power plant piping weld ultrasonic examination in Korea from April 2004. This paper describes the implementation status of the performance demonstration for nuclear power plant piping weld ultrasonic examination in Korea.
