Nuclear power simulator delivered to the Center for Advanced Engineering and Research

L-3 Mapps said it has delivered a research simulator to the Center for Advanced Engineering and Research (CAER) in Bedford, Va. The Advanced Configurable Main Control Room Simulator (ACMCRS) will be used for human-machine interface (HMI) and human factors (HF) studies, investigation of digital instrumentation and control systems for nuclear power plants, and cyber security issues.

The Center for Safe and Secure Nuclear Energy, one of the four research areas at the CAER, features the fully configurable ACMCRS, which will provide invaluable technical input for regulatory guidance in a range of applications, including control room design, digital technologies and human performance measures.

In the February issue of Power Engineering magazine, associate editor Brian Wheeler discusses in detail the Center for Advanced Engineering and Research.
