Report Title:CAMS Achievements in 1996
Activity Acronym:RAK-2

Abstract:CAMS (Computerized Accident Management Support:, is a system that will provide assistance to the staff in the Control room, in the technical support centre, and in a national safety centre. These three groups of users do not need the same type of support. 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. In May 1995, the predictive part of the system was tested at a safety exercise arranged by the Swedish Nuclear Inspectorate, and found to be a useful tool, with potential for further development. Now, new methods are added in signal validation, state identification, tracking simulation, predictive simulation, risk monitoring, and man-machine interface design. A prototype was demonstrated at Loen in May 1996 and at a seminar at Barseback in September 1996. This prototype has been further developed during the autumn of 1996. The purpose of this prototype is to test those methods in a simulated environment to verify that the developed functions, using different techniques, can work together producing the desired result in an efficient way. The plan is to test these techniques at power plants. During the CAMS design, a considerable effort has been given to maintain the generality of the CAMS concept; although the referenced process has been so far a BWR nuclear plant, the use of this structure and design can be applied to other processes, including non-nuclear processes. CAMS is a system being developed as a joint research activity at the Halden Project in close cooperation with member organizations with additional financing from the Swedish Nuclear Inspectorate (SKI) and the Nordic NKS/RAK-2 project.
