STP nuclear plant to receive training simulator upgrades

L-3 Mapps will upgrade the full scope and classroom simulators at the 2,700-MW South Texas Project (STP).
 
In addition to modernizing the simulator platforms of L-3’s Orchid simulation environment, L-3 Mapps will connect the Electric Power Research Institute’s Modular Accident Analysis Program (MAAPS) to the STP simulators. MAAPS is a software program that performs severe accident analysis for nuclear power plants, including assessments of core damage and radiological transport. L-3 Mapps will also equip the simulators with 2-D and 3-D animated, interactive visualizations of the reactor vessel, containment building and spent fuel pool.
 
The upgraded simulators will be used for training purposes related to degraded reactor core conditions that result in fuel melting.
