INNOVATIONS IN NUCLEAR POWER: THE DIGITAL MODERNIZATION OF CONTROL ROOMS

April 20, 2022 - A recent study from Idaho National Labs (INL) conducted as part of the Light Water Reactor Sustainability (LWRS) Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), identifies practices and principles to support nuclear power plant Digital Instrumentation & Controls (DI&C) modernizations.

One practice proposed was the use of a safety-qualified switching architecture, based on Keyboard-Video-Mouse (KVM) components, referred to as a Display-Keyboard-Trackball (DKT) architecture. The DKT architecture envisioned by the DOE research provides for a flexible Human System Interface (HSI) solution for the Main Control Room (MCR) that achieves the benefits of:

  • simplification of the control room layout
  • improvement of the Human System Interface (HSI)
  • cost reduction from fewer displays
  • consolidation of operator functions

Thinklogical’s highly-secure signal management products help address NERC-CIP cyber requirements, resulting in better data security, reduced costs and increased productivity.
