Self-standing systems (SSS) refer to process systems which have embedded their own automation equipment in contrast to the main control and safety systems of the NPP.
Under the authority of I&C self-standing system lead commissioning engineer, the SSS commissioning engineer will conduct the commissioning scope related to the automation portions of the self-standing systems (SSS).
They are made up mainly of Siemens S7/Step7 product line and relay technology as well as conventional panels under Winccflex or WINCC. They embrace also Profibus DP fieldbus components and the configuration of the connected devices (slaves).
The SSS commissioning engineer subject to that job description supports mainly (but is not limited to) the designed process commissioning engineers.
Following activities are included within his / her scope.
1. Review of the automation portion of the SSS prior to commissioning start with regard to:

- Provide inputs with regard to work progress and status on a system basis to system Commissioning Engineer.
- Provide inputs with regard to overall status and workload to I&C Commissioning Head Branch.
- Propose corrective actions in case of deviations in test performance s or test reports.
4. Closing-out activities:
- Support the issue of System Commissioning Reports (SCR) and Phase Commissioning Reports (PCR) for their portions dealing with PLC.
- Support the closing of open points assigned to Commissioning and related to the automation.
- During test execution period shift work may be requested.
- Engineering degree in Automation required.
- General and technical background expected.
