SIPA, a Training and Engineering Simulator and AGLAE, a Flexible Workshop for Model Generation
An advanced nuclear plant simulator called SIPA (for “Simulator for Post Accidental Situation”) is under development for the French utility EDF. The Department of technical support to the Safety Authority (CEA — IPSN) intends to acquire a similar simulator as well for safety analyses.
to train Shift Safety Advisors (SSA) to identify the plant situation and mitigate accident consequences
to be an experimentation tool for EDF design engineers.
automatic generation of source code
creation of interconnections between models
creation of links between simulation code and interactive control images displayed on screens.
Although this system has been originally developed for nuclear applications it could be used for the simulation of any type of industrial process.
