Design and Analysis of Nuclear Processes with the Apros
APROS is the product being developed in the Process Simulators project of Imatran Voima Co. and Technical Research Centre of Finland. The aim is to design and construct an efficient and easy to use computer simulation system for process and automation system design, evaluation, analysis, testing and training purposes. At halfway of this project a working system exists with a large number of proven routines and models. However, a lot of development is still foreseen before the project will be finished. This article gives an over view of the APROS in general and of the nuclear features in particular. The calculational capabilities of the system are presented with the help of one example.
