The Experimental Plasma Generation System (EPGS) is proposed for studying and investigating plasma behavior in vacuum conditions and under the influence of the varying boundary conditions. Furthermore, (EPGS) is intended to verify the computational models with the physical data. The safety design of EPGS takes into consideration the target safety system design, input parameters, output parameters, measurement techniques, and the fault propagation scenarios with respect to the Process Safety Management (PSM) via the IEC 61508. Also, the design of the Target Real Time Safety System (TRTS) for EPGS will be explained in relation to its primary experimental functions. The TRTS will be simulated using Simulink, with errors randomly generated at key cracking points, and the shut down procedure will be executed based on the deterministic algorithm for the Real Time Safety Verification (RTSV). In the nutshell, the cumulative outcome of the current work is to provide a design for plasma experimentation device that will have scalable properties in both the physical parameters, as well as the safety parameters.
