The I & C (Instrumentation and Control) design of the CVCS (Chemical and Volume Control System) for the EPR™ nuclear power plant in Taishan (TSN NPP) is shortly introduced and the corresponding I & C module assignment procedure, according to the functional safety class principle, is described.

An example of the I & C module assignment procedure is given for a control loop of the CVCS. In addition, the corresponding advantages and drawbacks are described and discussed.

The approach described introduces a new method for the concerned I & C design by improving the interface between the system, process, and I & C engineering design.

In fact, a fruitful collaboration was reached between the system and I & C design for the EPR™ project in Taishan, for the concerned interface.
