Almost all boiling water reactors and many pressurized water reactors use a core monitoring system in the plant control room. These core monitor systems combine measured data and physics calculations monitor the compliance of fuel thermal limits according to the plantâ€™s Technical Specification requirements. For a variety of reasons, these systems are frequently not available in the simulated control room, or are available only via a simplified emulation. This paper presents a product which allows rigorous core monitoring to be present in the control room. Further, this paper discusses the additional instructional capabilities offered by the usage of software of this nature.
