Instrumentation and Control systems are the nervous system of a nuclear power plant. They monitor all facets of the plant's health and help respond with care and adjustments needed, thus ensuring goals of efficient power production and safety. Due to safety significance of I&C, it becomes increasingly important to have a design verification methodology which ensures I&C systems fully functional. The strategy discussed the system modeling for design verification using Petri Net, converting it into Markov Chain and solving the linear system mathematically. It also exploits the best attribute of the created Markov model. The approach has been validated on seven sets of operation profile data of reactor control system of seven Nuclear Power Plants. The singular & plural of an acronym are always spelled the same.
