2 Post-Fukushima Drivers of Severe Accident Simulation FLEX NTTF RMRF B.5.b IRM ASME NSC HD simulator Desktop & full-scope Classroom Training Site drills/ exercises Safety analysis V&V
3 What Does the Industry Need? • A single tool for: – Safety analysis, emergency planning, technical support and training organizations – Desktop, classroom, and full-scope simulators – Multi-unit site scenarios from normal operations to EOP, SAMG and EDMG – Ease of coupling with plant desired codes, such as dose • An essential tool to meet regulatory requirements (e.g., NTTF) in post-Fukushima • Reducing costs and risks with intuitive tool set to facilitate training, drills/exercises, analysis, and V&V
4 Tier 1 NTTF Recommendations • 2.1 - Seismic and flood hazard reevaluations • 2.3 - Seismic and flood walk downs • 4.1 - Station blackout (SBO) regulatory actions • 4.2 - Equipment covered under Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 50.54(hh)(2) • 5.1 - Reliable hardened vents for Mark I and Mark II containments • 7.1 - SFP instrumentation • 8 - Strengthening and integration of emergency operating procedures, severe accident management guidelines (SAMGs), and extensive damage mitigation guidelines • 9.3 - Emergency preparedness regulatory actions (staffing and communications)
5 Tier 3 NTTF Recommendations • 9.1/9.2 - Emergency preparedness (EP) enhancements for prolonged SBO and multiunit events (dependent on availability of critical skill sets) • 9.3 - ERDS capability (related to long-term evaluation Recommendation 10) • 10 - Additional EP topics for prolonged SBO and multi-unit events (long-term evaluation) • 11 - EP topics for decision making, radiation monitoring, and public education (long term evaluation) • 12.1 – Reactor oversight process modifications to reflect the recommended defense in-depth framework (dependent on recommendation 1) • 12.2 - Staff training on severe accidents and resident inspector training on SAMGs (dependent on recommendation 8)
6 Desktop Simulator Technology • PSA-HD (MAAP code) • Interactive GUI • Simulates most important systems & scenarios (RCS/ SG/Cont./Aux Blvd./SFP/Dose) Applications • Classroom training • Computer-based training (graphical and text procedures) • Engineering analysis

16 PSA-HD Sample Configuration
17 Key Points • Need to work with PRA and EP groups – PRA group has MAAP Models (this is the standard) – EP need these tools first and are developing responses to the Recommendations (Flex, SAMG) – Model is important – Then training • May not need full-scope integration – Start with single unit desktop (include Flex, etc.) – Then expand to multi-unit/site model with fuel pool, etc. – Use for validating updated procedures (demonstrate effectiveness) – Expand interface for training of decision makers and stakeholders – Then maybe integrate with full-scope simulator • All desktop work is applicable so investment is not lost
