ISA’s New Book
Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA –The International Society of Automation (ISA) announces that it has published a new book that declares that another Chernobyl- or Fukushima-like catastrophe -is inevitable unless nuclear power plants across the world adopt fully automated safety systems.
Automation Can Prevent the Next Fukushima by Béla G. Lipták, P.E., a well-known automation, optimization and safety control consultant with more than 50 years in safety control system design experience, explains that while the automation technology exists to prevent the vast majority of nuclear reactor disasters, the world’s nuclear energy facilities continue to rely on human operators to monitor plant conditions and manually take corrective safety measures when needed.
