Title: Multifunctional optimized scope simulators versus full-scope simulators-European trends

Abstract

The multifunctional optimized scope simulator (MOSS) is a concept that has not yet imposed itself in the simulation world. Although it has been used in different countries, it does not always cover the same content. The basic characteristic that has led to this name is the multiplicity of the functions covered by this type of simulator in the field of operator training. Indeed, such a simulator is intended to be used as follows: (1) in the initial training as a basic principle training simulator (2) for training on specific systems as a functional simulator (3) as operations training by offering an environment that makes it possible to perform all operating procedures (4) as an analyzer by providing pedagogical screens dedicated to the comprehension of physical phenomena. It is therefore defined as multifunctional. What is the contribution of MOSS to the training of a nuclear power plant (NPP) operator compared to that of a full-scope simulator (PSS)? How are these tools complementary? What are the advantages of one over the other, and how is it possible to integrate these tools into a training equipment plan? These questions are reviewed in this paper.
