A demonstrative example application was carried out using a simplified PRA model to calculate the component-level risk importance measures from the PRA-calculated risk importance measures of the basic events relating to the components. The simplified PRA model used for the demonstrative examples is presented in Appendix B.1. It is based on a pressurized water reactor and is built on RiskSpectrum® PRA computer code. It is pointed out that this model was developed for demonstration of risk importance measures only and should not be related to actual NPP risk.
