Early attention to safety will ensure that the potential safety advantages of fusion are realized. Reliability analysis techniques are applied to a major safety system, the emergency power supply system, using the STARFIRE design as an example. The median failure probability of this system is found to be 2 × 10−6 at shutdown, with an error factor of 5. This is comparable with the reliability of similar systems in existing fission power stations.
