Increasing ROI Through Simulation and the 'Digital Twin'

  1. 1. Increasing ROI through Simulation and the 'Digital Twin'
  2. 2. 2 Outline • Beyond Training • What would you do with a Digital Twin? • Innovation to Maximize your Digital Twin – Fossil ROI – Nuclear ROI
  3. 3. 3 Who is GSE Performance Solutions History Plant Experience
  4. 4. 4 Beyond Training From Training – Plant Referenced Simulators – 10 CFR 55 • Respond Same as Plant/ Using Plant Procedures To Deeper Insights – Real-time, whole plant, dynamic model … already have a “Digital Twin”
  5. 5. 5 Digital Twin 10 CFR 55 ANSI/ANS 3.5-2009 RG 1.149 Rev 4
  6. 6. 6 What Would You Do With a “Digital Twin”?
  7. 7. 7 "There's a way to do it better—find it.“ - Thomas Edison What Has Changed … Why Now? • Cost Effective Computing Power • Efficiency demands / “Deliver the Nuclear Promise” • Deeper Insights Available With Flexible and Expandable Platform – Engineering Grade Codes in the Simulator • RELAP (RELAP5-HD™) – INL code used by utilities for safety analysis • MAAP (DesignEP™ / PSA-HD™) – EPRI code used for Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA)
  8. 8. 8 IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things)…Now Big Data Analytics Digital Twin Physical Plant IIoT Smart Components
  9. 9. 9 IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things)…Future Big Data Analytics Digital Twin Physical Plant Smart Components
  10. 10. 10 Thermal Power ROI Examples • Simulator Based Design … efficiency • Virtual Commissioning … validation Pumps and Piping Transmitter Location DCS Control and Plant Trip Logic HMI / HSI Eliminate Near Misses Errors Detected – Time Saved – Cost Eliminated
  11. 11. 11 Thermal Power ROI Examples Post Commissioning DCS Code Transfer
  12. 12. 12 Nuclear ROI Examples • Simulator Based Design Nuclear New Build – AP1000 Simulator Supervisor (AP1000) “Several hundred I&C issues have been identified in the non-safety and safety systems and fed back to OEM for correction in the AP1000 design.”
  13. 13. 13 Nuclear ROI Examples • Virtual Commissioning Digital Turbine Control Installed on Virtual Sim Turbine Control Upgrade Final Install on Simulator HMI Verification Operator FamiliarizationProcedure Validation Control Panel HFE Evaluation Plant Response
  14. 14. 14 Nuclear ROI Examples • Virtual Commissioning Digital Feedwater Project Simulator Engineering prior to FW Mod – Installed prior to DCS mod in plant to support training – Conducted plant system testing using simulator – Found several control scheme issues – Allowed plant to delay install and avoiding an expensive extended outage
