Diverse Actuation System (DAS) is designed as a diverse backup system for Protection and Safety Monitoring System (PMS) to perform the functions of reactor trip and engineered safety features actuation in AP1000 type nuclear power plants. However, not all of the PMS functions should be included in the DAS design. In this paper, the Probabilistic Safety Assessment (PSA) technique was used to identify the DAS functions by comparing the core damage frequency caused by initiating events in at-power internal event PSA. Furthermore, protection parameter signals of DAS to actuate mitigating systems are identified by accident progress analysis.
