  What is a Line Reactor? A line reactor (also referred to as an electrical reactor or a choke) is a variable frequency drive (VFD) accessory that consists of a coil of wire that forms a magnetic field as current flows through it. This magnetic field limits the rate of rising of the current, thus reducing harmonics and protecting the drive from power system surges and transients.   Schriener, TM, El-Genk, MS, Steam Generator Model and Controller for Cybersecurity Analyses of Digital I&C Systems in PWR Plants.

NuPAC system components can be assembled in separate divisions with voting logic for specific plant safety requirements to implement plant systems such as: • Reactor trip systems • Engineered safety features systems • Safe shutdown systems. PLC stands for Programmable Logic Controllers. They are basically used to control automated systems in industries. They are one of the most advanced and simplest forms of control systems which are now replacing hard wired logic relays at a large scale.   Like many things nowadays, Power Plants are controlled using a PLC, Programmable Logic Controller, or DCS, Distributed Control System. The ability for condition monitoring of all the plant items enables us to determine what is running efficiently, and what could fail. A highly sophisticated computer worm that has spread through Iran, Indonesia and India was built to destroy operations at one target: possibly Iran's Bushehr nuclear reactor.

Typical applications for such controllers can be found in automatic washing machines, video cameras, and cars. This paper proposes a PLC(Programmable Logic Controller)-based safety critical software development technique for nuclear power plants’ I&C software controllers.

To improve software safety, we write the software requirements specification using a formal specification notation named NuSCR [1]. The First Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) • Introduced in the late ’s • Developed to offer the same functionality as the existing relay logic systems • Programmable, reusable and reliable – Could withstand a harsh industrial environment – They had no hard drive, they had battery backup – Could start in seconds.

Programmable Logic Controller(PLC) is applied to a reactor protection system and an engineered safety feature-component control system as major safety system components in nuclear power plants. Programmable logic controllers can use “ladder logic” or “ladder diagrams (LD),” which is a simplistic programming language included within the IEC standard that is well suited for industrial applications.

Ladder logic gets its name from the legacy method of implementing discrete logic via electromechanical relays and was initially referenced as “relay ladder logic.”.

This paper describes a method for developing a challenge response authentication mechanism and then using it in the POSAFE-Q Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) system used in the Advanced Power Reactor (APR) NPP.

The proposed approach is going to be a reference model for the development and application of the challenge-response.
