The Method of Analysis of Safety Systems Dedicated to the Systems in Rail Vehicle

Adrian Gill


The detailed algorithm of SSARV(P) – Safety System Analysis of Rail Vehicles is presented in this paper. Particular steps of SSARV(P) take into account the selected rules of LOPA – Layer of Protection Analysis. SSARV(P) is an overall method of SSARV provided for conceptual phase of safety system. The essence of SSARV(P) is to evaluate the proposed safety system based on measures of hazard risk. The measure of hazard risk is determined using known risk models. This paper presents also a description of LOPA and its general algorithms. Basic information about the independent layers of protection are presented as well.
