Continued commissioning of nuclearpower plants requires strict adherence to Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) conformance. Commissioning of digital equipment upgrades requires a well-planned and thorough EMC evaluation.
Washington Laboratories has over 20 years of experience supporting the nuclear power industry, providing expert EMC engineering for operators and manufacturers.
We have extensive experience in a variety of engineering and testing programs for compliance with NRC Regulatory Guide 1.180 and EPRI TR-102323. We perform testing at our laboratory facilities near Washington, DC as well as on-site at plant and manufacturer locations.
Our specialties include equipment testing, evaluation and engineering geared to meet product standards and performance requirements for safety and other critical equipment to be installed in the Nuclear Plant environment.
We assess existing plants to determine the existing Radio Frequency (RF) environment and support planning and installation of equipment to minimize interference during commissioning and operation. We have made direct site visits to over 40 nuclear facilities across the US, and have the expertise to assess EMC issues, address system and component design and proper control measures.
We also provide expert training programs that cover EMC issues, compliance with regulatory requirements, design, installation and maintenance for continuing electromagnetic compatibility.
