As a kind of Generation-III passive nuclear power plant, AP1000 has applied two kinds of equipment reliability management methods: the equipment Power Production Reliability Classification (R-Classification) method and Design-Reliability Assurance Program (D-RAP). To invest these two methods, the comparison is implemented between the classification principles, judgment basis and implementation process. According to the RCS and CVS systems, the R-Classification and D-RAP results are compared and some suggestions to enhance the NPP reliability managements are proposed.
