- This paper discusses issues which bear on the question of how safety is to be demonstrated for ``simplified passive`` light water reactor (LWR) designs. First, a very simplified comparison is made between certain systems in today`s plants. comparable systems in evolutionary designs, and comparable systems in the simplified passives. in order to introduce the issues. This discussion is not intended to describe the designs comprehensively, but is offered only to show why certain issues seem to be important in these particular designs. Next, an important class of accident sequences is described; finally, based on this discussion, some priorities in risk analysis are presented and discussed.
