An automatic verification method has been studied to determine the safety and operability of programmable logic controller (PLC) based systems. For the systematic and efficient verification, we have developed a conversion method from relay ladder logic (RLL) to the verification system description. RLL is a common representation used to document PLC programs for the sequential logic of the system such as the safety interlocks and the startup/shutdown procedures. Once the modules are developed, complex RLLs can be represented by the combination of modules. As a result we can verify complex PLC systems using the verification method including RLL modules. The developed modules are used to verify alarm systems and show that the method is valid.
