  • Experiences of recent years have demonstrated the need for utilities operating nuclear power plants to effectively analyze operational transient events and to train their staffs to understand the basic features of such events. The EPRI program to develop a Company Analyzer combines modeling capabilities of the EPRI Modular Modeling System (MMS) with real-time graphic display capabilities of the EPRI Information Monitoring and Applied Graphics Environment (IMAGE). The result is an integrated system which: (a) allows a user to interactively define transient events and perform important control functions; (b) performs transient analyses on a host minicomputer; and (c) updates colorgraphic displaysmore » in real-time to present the results. The Boiling Water Reactor (BWR) Compact Analyzer includes a plant model representing the BWR core and vessel, important control and protection systems, and balance of plant including feedwater heaters, high and low pressure turbines and extraction lines. As an option, the user may choose to model only the nuclear steam supply system, with the balance of plant interfaces treated only as boundary conditions. A set of color displays was developed which includes mimics of the vessel, balance of plant, and safety systems, as well as a system overview display and time-plots of key parameters. The architecture of the Compact Analyzer system is documented in detail. This project has culminated in a prototype system demonstrating the Compact Analyzer for Boiling Water Reactor applications.« less
  • This report describes the results of EPRI sponsored project RP1184-12, for the development of an MMS color-graphics analyzer and specifications for fossil-fuel power plant simulators. The system is called Compact Analyzer and was originally designed and developed under EPRI RP2395-2 for nuclear power plant applications. Compact Analyzer is a CRT-based, non-replica simulator with features for both engineering and training applications. This report provides guidelines for the development of power plant simulator specifications, and describes the design of the EPRI Compact Analyzer system, as well as its application as a simulator to fossil-fuel power plants. In this demonstration a full plantmore » model, including the control system, is interfaced with interactive user graphic displays built on an IBM PC. A hierarchical set of displays represent the plant in an increasing level of detail. Displays, in addition to the process schematic diagrams and trend plots, include a representation of control panels with push-button displays for operator control functions. The simulations are controlled through a combination of these displays and a standard keyboard. 13 refs., 12 figs., 1 tab.« less
  • The recent advancements in high performance small computers, software techniques, and user interface graphics workstation, has resulted in the development of the computer aided engineering tools in many different areas. The EPRI Compact Analyzer is such a system, that combines modular and accurate models with a flexible and adaptable software into a cost effective simulation workstation. Because of the reduced cost and ease of use, the Compact Analyzer can be applied to a broad range of applications which require process modeling in power plants. This report presents the results of an EPRI sponsored project (RP2395-2) for design and development ofmore » an interactive, and color graphics based simulator for power plant analysis.« less
