    Weaknesses of RF Networks

    1.Vulnerable to a variety of cyber attacks such as man-in-the-middle attack (MITM), packet spoofing, packet injection, sniffing, unauthorized tapping and transfer

    2.Electromagnetic interference (EMI) in the instrumentation and control system (I&C System) to perform safety function

    3.Not reliable in a noisy environment

    Ø Wi-Fi cause interference on RF devices in these environments Ø Large number of users and robots need to be connected to network Ø Even wired networks are not completely practical due to the

    moving robots or arms

    Ø The electro magnetic radiance from power generators, voltage converters and transmission lines cause interference on RF systems in power plants

    Ø LC can provide a safe and reliable wireless communication technique, specially in emergency

    qThere are three major issues Ø Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) or interference (EMI) issues Ø Cyber security Ø Installation issues due to the type of the building structure

    q In nuclear power plant control rooms, radio devices have been banned because of concerns about interference to the instrumentation and control equipment. q NO Wi-Fi or Bluetooth is permitted. q Wired network is costly and bulky q A mesh network using of LED lights can reduce the pain

    LC-based Wireless Sensor Networks in Nuclear Facilities

    qIn 2009, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) issued a cyber security rule requiring licensees to provide high assurance that critical systems and networks are adequately protected from cyber attacks [10 CFR 73.54].

    q Although great effort has been spent to improve cyber security of RF wireless network technology such as Wi-Fi can still not be implemented everywhere in NPP.
