To facilitate online maintenance for High Pressure Safety Injection (HPSI) system in nuclear power plant, the optimization measure for Allowed Outage Time (AOT) is proposed in this paper, and risk-Informed decision-making approach is used to demonstrate its feasibility. According to the analysis results, the extension of AOT meets the requirements of relative guides and deterministic analysis, and the impact on risk of plant is acceptable. Based on the extension of AOT, it is feasible to carry out online maintenance for safety system and corresponding support systems, which can effectively reduce workload during shutdown.
