Nuclear Power Plants are a complex system and need to be controlled very meticulously to avoid any catastrophe from occurring. The safety and availability of the power plant relies on the human operators both through their ability and reliability to ensure smooth and trouble-free plant operations. Training the operators on normal plant operation, maintenance, fault diagnosis and unforeseen emergencies in the plant helps reduce the latency period of the plant and thus increase the efficiency. Operator Training Simulator has become an indispensable entity in imparting hands on training to these operators. Development of process simulators calls for the process to be designed, modeled and implemented to replicate the real plant in steady state and transient conditions.
