Maximizing return on operator training investment: virtualization and web based technologies

“Operator Training solutions based on rigorous dynamic simulation and control system software emulation have a been a reality for many years. Although many initiatives have been done to bring web-based content to operator training, it is only recently that these technologies are being applied successfully to leverage the more complex training solutions based on rigorous simulation. Hence, those training systems that had to be physically deployed at every site where operators were trained, with the evolution of the software technologies to support and enable mobility can now be remote by combining some of these latest developments, such as e-learning standards, virtualization and remote application presentation. This distributed framework enabled brings new opportunities to training systems: it does not only facilitate scalability of the training sessions or overall system maintenance, but it also grants access to comprehensive training to more people in many different conditions. The return of investment in training and education is then maximized by easing the access to many more people. In this presentation these concepts are explained by using two real implementations of training systems for operators, with different levels of complexity, one at a European refinery, and another at the headquarters of a European process licensor”

Distributed energy resources emulator platforms for smart grids solutions

The importance of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) in the power system is increasing: renewable distributed generation, storage, electric vehicles, demand response, microgrids (a combination of the formers), etc. Thus, new concepts on control, operation, design and protection are required to be developed. R+D+i activities for dealing with these based on real devices usually requires quite a lot of time and a large investment. In order to reduce this time, emulator platforms include emulation devices consisting on both software and a hardware (based on power electronics ), which allow to physically represent the behaviour of such different resources and test them . With such emulation platform, damage real setups is avoided, different scenarios can be tested using the same devices, space requirement and cost are lower, and time scale is flexible.”

From the experiment to the power plant

Building up a simulation tool for a nuclear power plant is a complex task which involves the management of huge amounts of data including the geometrical details, material composition, detailed control systems and definition of physical models in selected locations. Therefore the accuracy of a simulation tool will not only depend on the quality of the software behind the scenes but also on the experience of the user who inputs all the details of the power plant into the model. Acquiring and training this experience is crucial.
