ACCIDENT SIMULATOR DEVELOPMENT FOR PROBABILISTIC SAFETY ANALYSIS
This paper describes the basic features of a new type of incident simulator which is being developed within the CEC JRC Research Programme on Reactor Safety. Focusing on somewhat different aims than actual simulators, our development extends the field of application of simulators to the area of risk and reliability analysis and in particular to the identification of relevant sequences, to the modelling of human behaviour and to the validation of operating procedures. The fundamental components of the project, i.e. the deterministic transient model of the plant, the probabilistic computerized driver and the human behaviour model, are discussed in connection with the problem of their dynamic and automatic interface treatment. The analysis so far performed by separately testing the single simulator component as well as by combining them in simple benchmark problems have shown encouraging results and have proven the feasibility of the overall programme.
