The simulator will be used for human-machine interface and human factors studies. It will facilitate training in and investigation of digital instrumentation and control systems, cyber security and operation of a nuclear power plant. It will include four operator stations, each able to accommodate up to 10 monitors.
The Center for Safe and Secure Nuclear Energy, one of the primary research areas in CAER, will feature the EPR simulator as part of a configurable control room.
