I&C Testing Simulator

Purpose:

  • Testing emulated I&C and real cabinets including dynamic testing of transients

Advantages:

  • More realistic and efficient testing of I&C compared to individual signal tests (”operational profile” testing)
  • Testing emergency situations which cannot be tested at the power plant
  • Testing both the real cabinets and emulated systems provides accuracy in modelling I&C in the training simulator.
  • I&C Testing Simulator allows the timely identification of possible defects and, as a result, saves commissioning time.

Full Scope Training simulator

Purpose:

  • Training and certification of NPP operators
  • Integrated validation of control room and emergency operating procedures

Advantages:

  • One model covering all the processes
  • The use of virtual panels significantly lowers the costs and makes it easy to introduce changes.

Full Scope Simulator in virtual reality

Purpose:

  • NPP personnel training
  • Validation of the main control room concept
  • Training the actions in case of e.g. a fire in the control room
  • Cooperation between the operators and the field personnel (e.g. fire and security brigades)

Advantages:

  • Timely correction of possible mistakes in the design of the main control room
  • Training of the events which cannot be trained at a traditional simulator
