Summary

The paper discusses issues of quantitative determination of safety parameters of reactor units (RU). Such an indicator safety regulations is estimated core damage frequency, the numerical values which are the same for different types of reactors and power, and the range of more than two orders of magnitude. This paper presents an algorithm for determining safety performance through constructive safety parameters of RU. An example of the determination of NPP safety parameters on the specific activity of the primary coolant of WWER-1000.

Keywords: reactor unit, safety parameters, probabilistic model of the accident  events, the core damage frequency , the coolant  activity.
