  • This document provides an updated user guide for Patriot Script Version 1.0.13, for release with PEM 1.3.1 (LAUR-1422817) that adds description and instructions for the new excursion capability (see section 4.5.1).
  • PATRIOT Script is an application that executes Patriot batch runs. This document provides a description of this application and how to run it. The basic user access tool PATRIOT Client allows a user to generate several most reliable paths in one run: one can specify a list of sources (origins) and targets, and PATRIOT finds for a given architecture option and one choice of device all the most reliable paths between all these sources and targets. The main objective of PATRIOT Script is to provide a tool for making automatic PATRIOT runs not only for a prespecified set of sourcesmore » and targets, but also for a pre-specified set of devices and various architecture options. Running PATRIOT Script requires two basic steps that will be explained in more detail next: (1) Pre-preparation of an excel spreadsheet with the information about the desired runs; and (2) Opening the PATRIOT Script application, reading in the excel-spreadsheet and running the desired scenarios. Sections 1 and 2 explain each of these steps, and section 3 describes the output of the PATRIOT Script. For a detail description of the models and data behind PATRIOT and a detailed explanation of all the architecture options see [1]. For instructions of how to run PATRIOT Client see [2].« less
  • Rising operation and maintenance (OM) costs of central heating plants have forced the Army to seek alternative methods of running these facilities. Computer technology offers a great potential to automate and assist in many OM tasks by helping diagnose equipment malfunctions and failures. An automated diagnostic tool for coal-fired heating plant equipment could reduce the demand for human labor, freeing personnel for higher priority work; reduce downtime for repair; promote thermal efficiency; and improve on-line reliability. In this project researchers developed a Coal-Fired Central Energy Plant Operations Expert System (CEPES), which analyzes and recommends solutions to coal-fired boiler operational problems.more » This phase of the project included the selection of hardware and software platforms, development and coding of the expert system, and knowledge acquisition for one module for field testing. The design of CEPES is unique due to the development of a system editor (CEPES Editor) that allows a field engineer to construct a plant configuration and insert expertise without the use of source level code.

  • The Hazardous Materials Inventory Database (HMID) addresses requirements set forth by the Superfund Amendment Reauthorization Act (SARA) Title 3 legislation. These ``Right-to-Know`` laws require that inventories and environmental releases of hazardous materials be reported annually to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The SARA Section 312 refers to Hazardous Inventories and Section 313 refers to Toxic Releases to the Environment. The primary objective of the HMID is to automate the data gathering and report preparation necessary to comply with these regulations. Secondary objectives of the system include assisting in waste minimization efforts by providing on-line access to chemical inventories and locations,more » and support for DOE and external agencies requests for data. This user guide provides instruction for operation of the HMIDPC system. This document is centered around the screens which are generated by the HMIDPC system on your computer console.« less
