Please contact us for more information on Cantata for IEC Qualifying Polyspace Code Verifiers. Classification of instrumentation and control functions Status: In our code, a few lines were marked red, meaning they 62126 proven faulty but justified as correct and valid statements. Please download Chrome or Firefox or view our browser tips.

Section 8 – Software verification. You may experience issues viewing this site in Internet Explorer 9, 10 or Polyspace code verifiers highlight code that is proven to be free of certain categories of run-time errors, enabling the team to focus their reviews on the remaining code.

Table B2 Software structure. Table B3 Self supervision. Chapter 14 of IEC covers the appropriate use of software tools, including those that can increase the integrity of the software development process and improve software reliability. Nuclear-electric power stations, Electric power stations, Nuclear power, Instruments, Control systems, Nuclear safety, Nuclear technology, Nuclear reactors, Measuring instruments, Classification systems.

Verifying High-Integrity Control Software for Mission-Critical Emergency Diesel Generators

Table B4 Detailed design and coding. Worldwide Standards We can source any standard from anywhere in the world. A formal review team checked and justified each code element marked as red, orange, or gray. We use cookies to make our website easier to use and to better understand your needs. In other cases, they may note that the operation could result in an overflow or underflow condition. The plan comprised three core areas: Nuclear power plant applications require the highest standards of safety and reliability.


A major drawback of kec reviews is that they are dependent on the human reviewers, and therefore are not repeatable.

Test status management dashboard add-on. For the third area, we documented our own use of Polyspace code verifiers and combined this with additional Polyspace product usage information so that we could adapt the certification kit based on our own use cases. Polyspace code verifiers, in contrast, deliver consistent results no matter how many times they are run on the same code.

In the event of an outage of the primary power supply, power plant operators rely on diesel engine-driven generators for the backup power needed to process vital iiec.

Embedded control software typically contains infinite loops.

Developers were not permitted 6126 submit code with known run-time errors highlighted in redbut they could submit code with unproven orange or unreachable gray elements.

The detailed results made it easier to identify problems with our code and to justify unproven or unreachable code. Cantata Team Reporting Test status management dashboard add-on. MTU gensets meet these standards.

After integrating all the code into the version control system, we ran Polyspace code verifiers to recheck the entire code base. Agencies and customers needed proof that we had a plan for software development, that the tools we used were qualified, and that we had followed the plan and used the tools correctly.

Our IEC Standard Briefing traces the requirements of IECidentifying the scope of those which are supported by Cantata and identifies 611226 the requirements are supported by Cantata. With the diesel engine control software in the final stages of the approval process, MTU engineers have begun to employ Polyspace code verifiers on other projects, including several commercial non-safety control software systems built using Model-Based Design.


We use Polyspace products to verify the generated code.

BS IEC 61226:2005

A word processor is an example of a noncritical tool. IEC defines requirements for the software used in computer-based instrumentation and nuclear power plant control systems—specifically, software that performs functions of safety category A, as defined by IEC A key element of our new software development process was tool chain managementan area concerned with the selection and qualification of software development and testing tools.

Each tool has been certified as usable in development of safety related software according to IEC This level of informal testing gave developers immediate feedback on their code, enabling them to address any outstanding issues before formal integration testing. Accept and continue Learn more about the cookies we use and how to change your settings. Technical Articles and Newsletters. Your basket is empty. For example, they may highlight the use of absolute memory addresses, which are sometimes hard-coded in embedded software.

August Replaced By: Each issue that is identified in the source code is linked back to the Simulink model, enabling us to trace potential problems to their source.

These default options were correctly highlighted in gray. Other MathWorks country sites are not optimized for visits from your location. Search all products by. When we began developing the control software, we had relatively little in-house expertise in IEC requirements.
