Improving Simulator Training? Try SACADA

Sponsored by the Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research
This tabletop presents the NRC’s Scenario Authoring, Characterization, and Debriefing Application (SACADA) system. The SACADA system includes a software application to systematically collect information on the performance of nuclear power plants operating crews in simulator training. The data can be used to improve operator simulator training and to inform human reliability analysis. The South Texas Project Nuclear Operating Company (STPNOC) has used the SACADA system since 2012. This poster will discuss STPNOC’s experience and the perceived benefits for its simulator training. The poster will also invite other nuclear plants to collaborate with the NRC in using the SACADA system for their operator simulator training programs.
