We wish to express our warmest welcome to all participants and organizers of the tracks making up this 2014 Power Plant Simulation Conference (PowerPlantSim‘14). All attendees are welcome to attend all of the sessions and activities unless otherwise noted in the agenda.
PowerPlantSim‘14 offers a great forum for worldwide researchers and practitioners from Academia, Industry, Business, and Government to share their expertise, results and research findings relating to the Fossil and Nuclear energy community. This year’s conference will be held at the Astor Crowne Plaza Hotel in New Orleans, LA.
We wish to thank the many individuals, whose dedicated effort contributed to the success of the event.
Our sincere appreciation goes to all authors including those whose papers could not be accommodated in the program, and to all presenters.
On behalf of the Society for Modeling and Simulation International, SCS, we invite all of you to join us at PowerPlantSim 2014 in New Orleans, LA, USA.
When you’re looking for improving your power plant’s performance and reliability, you’ll want the right simulation experience to get you there. One company has the dedication to produce true-to-life power plant simulators that ensure that your personnel have the knowledge required to safely and efficiently operate your power plant.
DOING IT RIGHTProviding more than just training devices, L-3 MAPPS’ simulator solutions - powered by the unparalleled Orchid® suite of simulation products - will elevate your operation and engineering teams to new heights in addressing plant design issues, procedural deficiencies and reliability improvements. L-3 MAPPS simulators provide superior realworld power plant training. L-3 MAPPS offers a variety of products and services, including full scope simulators, classroom simulators, engineering simulators, part-task trainers, severe accident simulation, simulator retrofits and upgrades, and more. L-3 MAPPS provides design to completion turnkey systems, specific components, and simulator design tools as required by the customer. The company’s simulators offer the highest quality in modeling fidelity and training to provide trainees and instructors with user-friendly tools for learning, operating and mastering complex power plant systems.
The superior training environments of L-3 MAPPS simulators provide clear advantages for obtaining operator licenses/certification, optimizing plant operating procedures and reducing costs. Operators trained on L-3 MAPPS simulator environments acquire the skills necessary to increase plant performance, minimize downtime, and provide confident emergency response. Real-time responses to operator actions and interactive instructor controls ensure maximum training effectiveness and adaptability.
Simulator uses include interactive team training, severe incident management, plant design testing, and start-up/ shutdown optimization. Any scenario, no matter how complex or dangerous in a real plant, can be reproduced, monitored and varied in real time, providing a highly valuable tool for training, plant engineering and emergency response.

WSC, headquartered in Frederick, Maryland, is a global simulation company that was founded in 1995 and has been growing steadily based on the quality and efficiency of its products and its flexible team-oriented approach for serving customers.
WSC’s primary focus is the development and deployment of advanced 3KEYSOFTWARE® Simulation Technology, which consists of the 3KEYMASTER™ simulation platform and a suite of unified graphical modeling tools, which includes 3KEYRELAP5-RT™, an adaptation of Idaho National Laboratory (INL) thermal-hydraulics and neutronics models running within the 3KEYMASTER Environment. WSC has its roots in the nuclear, fossil and combined cycle power plant operator training simulators and provides both new simulators and modernization or refurbishment of existing simulators. Even though operator training simulators are WSC’s main focus, WSC has achieved significant growth in Simulation Assisted Engineering (SAE) based on the strength of its “engineering grade” simulation technology. Leading companies are now embedding WSC’s technology in their engineering processes to address the challenges of improving quality up-front and reducing complex engineering development and commissioning cycles. To support the increasing deployment of e-learning, WSC has developed 3KEYSTUDENT™, which brings state-of-the-art simulator training to a student’s PC anywhere in the world via the Internet. In response to the Fukushima event, WSC has embedded Severe Accident Analysis modeling in 3KEYMASTER by coupling MELCOR, a product of Sandia National Laboratories, with 3KEYRELAP5-RT.
WSC is committed to continually improving the capabilities of its technology and widening the applicability of its simulation technology to complex systems. To further this goal, WSC has a vigorous market-focused R&D program and a strong commitment to customer service. WSC is ready to server you for your complete simulation needs.
