This work is part of a continuing investigation by the EQL Task Force on Novel Methods of Siting Nuclear Power Plants, including underground siting, off-shore floating plants, and inland siting. This study of Most of the existing nuclear power plants (NPPs) in the world rely on traditional analog instrumentation and control (I&C) systems for monitoring, control, and protection functions. With the industrial base largely moving to digital systems, the operation and maintenance of plants involves managing issues including lack of needed analog spare
