Simulation Training Post Fukushima

  1. 1. Simulation Training Post Fukushima DesignEP – Beyond Design Basis Standalone Model info@gses.com  
  2. 2. 2 The Tools: Past •  Most plant reference simulators are not capable of beyond design basis (BDB) event. •  Currently, the majority of the beyond design basis training is done in a classroom using table top discussions and “what if?” scenarios. •  Almost none of the training is done with a simulator.
  3. 3. 3 The Tools: Future •  Standalone high fidelity engineering grade severe accident models •  Multiple unit site models •  High level of student interactivity •  Live “what if?” capabilities •  Combining already proven severe accident codes and proven simulation technology to provide ultimate learning solution
  4. 4. 4 The Technology: Past •  Severe accident training technology was limited to PowerPoint presentations. •  Maybe a walkthrough or discussion on the plant reference simulator
  5. 5. 5 The Technology: Future •  Proven severe accident codes –  MAAP, MELCOR, etc. •  Integrated with proven simulation technology •  Easy-to-use student interface
  6. 6. 6 The Practicality •  Plants already own a severe accident code and are currently using it for PRA/PSA. •  Standalone and portable –  Does not add additional burden to existing plant reference simulator •  Can be used to train operators, ERO, TSC personnel, EOF personnel, etc.
  7. 7. 7 The Practicality •  Opens a view into the plant and containment to see what is happening •  Can be used by engineering to provide additional functionality to the existing toolset
  8. 8. 8 The Next Steps •  Combining multiple severe accident models into a single severe accident training system •  Looking at the site level effects of a major event and the effects on multiple units •  FLEX implementation at a site level
  9. 9. 9 Takeaways •  There is a very good chance you already own a beyond design basis model that can be used to create a severe accident training system. This will save you money. •  BDB training can be done without the plant reference simulator. Most plant reference simulators are already overburdened.
  10. 10. 10 Takeaways •  Severe accident response should consider site level response and effects. •  Site level simulation is a new concept. •  Our approach to severe accident simulation can be used across the organization. It is not just a training tool but can also be used for engineering and analysis. •  Shared resources = shared costs
