WWER RPV Surveillance Programs


Water-water energetic reactors (WWERs) are, in principle, pressurized water reactors but designed and manufactured from Russian-type materials and operated according to former Soviet/Russian rules, standards, and requirements. Their surveillance specimen programs are designed, manufactured, operated, tested, and evaluated with the same purpose but with some differences given by different codes and approaches used in individual countries. This paper describes standard as well as all supplementary and extended surveillance programs in WWER-440/V-213- and WWER-1000/V-320C-type reactors.
