|Report Title:||The CAMS prototype|

|Abstract:||CAMS (Computerized Accident Management Support) is a system that will
provide support in normal states as well as in accident states. Support is
offered in identification of the plant state, in assessment of the future development
of the accident, and in planning of accident mitigation strategies. It
does not give support in execution of the chosen mitigation strategy.
We imagine different types of users: operators and shift leaders, the staff in
the technical support centre, and people in the national safety authorities.
These different types of users need different types of support.
CAMS picks up information &om the plant and transforms it into a more
digestible form before presenting it to the users. The transformation process
can be controlled by the user.
CAMS consists of a signal-validation module, a tracking simulator, a predictive
simulator, a strategy generator and a critical function monitor. Much
work has been put into the man-machine interface. The prototype does not
yet contain all these features, the present version comprises the predictive
parts of the system.
The purpose of the prototype is to test out the possibilities and also the difficulties
of the chosen design. The present prototype has been made for a boiling-
water reactor, but the possibility of making a version for pressurized water
reactors will be investigated.|
