  • 1. Real-Time Simulation for Design of New Nuclear Plants info@gses.com
  • 2. GSE Systems, Inc. • Profile – – – – – – – – • World leader in advanced simulator solutions and training programs World leader in Nuclear Simulation Vertical markets: nuclear, fossil, oil & gas, chemicals Over 1,100 installations for 160 customers in 48 countries Founded in 1929, IPO in 1994 Headquartered in Sykesville (Baltimore), Maryland 280 employees in 8 locations in 5 countries Annual revenue of $40M+ Relevance to our customers – – – – Culture of working with customer to solve problems Strong project management process and on-time delivery record Depth of staff and breadth of knowledge so there is no single point of failure Customer choice for first-of-a-kind projects Fossil – Coal O&G Refinery Nuclear Power Training Centers Training Technology 2
  • 3. Global Reach (HQ) Baltimore, MD St. Mary’s, GA Cary, NC Madison, NJ Americas Belgium Bulgaria Czech Republic Denmark Finland France Germany Italy Kazakhstan Norway Beijing, China Chennai, India Africa / Middle East Europe Argentina Brazil Canada Chile Mexico Puerto Rico United States Venezuela Nyköping, Sweden Stockton on Tees, UK Poland Russia Slovakia Spain Sweden Switzerland The Netherlands Ukraine United Kingdom Asia / Pacific Algeria Angola Egypt Libya Nigeria Oman Pakistan Qatar Saudi Arabia South Africa United Arab Emirates Australia China India Indonesia Japan Korea Malaysia Singapore Taiwan Turkmenistan Philippines Papua New Guinea 3
  • 4. Emphasis on Energy & Process Extensive Global Installations – – – – Nuclear Power (160+) Thermal (Fossil Fuel) Power (140+) Oil & Gas and Refining (40+, 180+) Chemicals & Petrochemical (60+, 100+) Full-Scope Simulators 4
  • 5. Simulation-Centered Solutions Highly Realistic Simulation Modeling 5
  • 6. What is a Simulator? • Feels like the real plant • Sophisticated algorithms precisely represent the physical phenomena of the plant • Simulated plant controls or integrated DCS control system • Fossil – Coal-Fired Instructor station controls the simulator exercises Process – Desalination Nuclear Control Room 6
  • 7. Nuclear Simulation 7
  • 8. Non-Nuclear Simulator 8
  • 9. Blended Learning & Simulation Products The right training solution for the right step of the learning process Full-Mission Simulators Configurable Part-Task & Procedures Trainers Integrated Models with 3D Instructor-Led Training 3D Maintenance Trainers Self-Paced Tutorial 9
  • 10. VIZSIM3D – Current Applications Generic Flow Loop Glass Models Part-Task Part-Task Training Training Fundamentals/ Part-Task Training Part-Task Training Team Training 10
  • 11. Engineering Simulators
  • 12. New Role of the Simulator Holistic Engineering Verification and Validation (V&V) Platform – Solves system design issues in integrated “plant” environment Controls System Design and V&V Platform – Real-time HD simulator provides first holistic view of plant – Validation and refinement of logic and control strategies: • key value of simulator Human Factors Engineering Platform – Supports design of DCS interface, alarms, electronic procedures, etc. – Supports design of digital control rooms, information layout and CONOPS – Demonstrates viability of these designs to regulator (show me) Operating Procedure and Training Material Development Platform Traditional goal is an ANS 3.5 simulator for training and licensing operators 12
  • 13. GSE First-of-a-Kind Engineering Simulator Experience SMART Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute Westinghouse AP1000 NuScale Power Pebble Bed Modular Reactor HYH CPR-1000 HFE and Control V&V Platform Ultra Supercritical Korea B&W mPower Engineering and HFE Simulator JMTR Test Reactor 13

High-Fidelity Predictive Models • Idaho National Lab RELAP5-3D – • Real-time version of the industry standard reactor transient analysis code Studsvik Simulate3-K Neutronics Model – Real-time version of the Simulate3 fuel analysis code • EPRI’s MAAP5 – Severe Accident Model • GSE’s High-Fidelity Modeling Tools – – – – JTopmeret: Two-Phase BOP System Modeling JControl: High-Fidelity Control Modeling JElectric: High-Fidelity Electrical System Modeling JDesigner: Flexible HSI Development Environment Key! Predictive models are necessary for engineering simulators. 15
  • 16. Simulator Value Proposition 1. Platform for integrated system design validation - Debug system designs and interoperation early in engineering process 1. Control strategy design/validation - Real-time platform for control engineering validation 1. HMI/control room human factors engineering (HFE) 2. Operating procedure validation 3. Control systems validation (simulation) 4. Plant demonstration to regulator and customers (marketing value) 5. Becomes a training platform (long-lead item) 16
  • 17. NUSCALE Background The real-time simulator will be the platform for both the development and demonstration of this new plant control room approach. • HFE and platform for demonstration of CONOPs to NRC for exemption • Control system design and V&V platform • Simulated assisted engineering (SAE) platform • Training (critical path to plant operation) 17
  • 18. HFE and SAE Simulator Engineering-Grade Primary Models • • RELAP5 S3R Remaining dynamic systems use GSE’s near engineering models • Jtopmeret • JElectric 18
  • 19. HFE and SAE Simulator NuScale engineers develop controls and logic, basic control screens, and operating procedures •JControl •Jdesigner System design data is validated on high-fidelity models • Steady-state and transient conditions •System performance is fed back to system design engineers via JStation 19
