THE VALUE OF SITUATIONAL AWARENESS TRAINING
Learning which information to use in making a decision on plant status is based upon the operator’s knowledge and experience. How do you get experience for hopefully rare plant conditions? Simulation provides the opportunity to expose operators to a wide variety of plant conditions in a safe environment.
To have good situational awareness the operator must be able to accurately assess and predict how much time is available to solve the problem. That time horizon can change during the event. EnVision simulations allow you to adjust the timing and severity of plant upsets so operators get a better time horizon.
Another key component of situational awareness is having the correct mental model of what is happening within the plant. Building that mental model requires a good understanding of the fundamentals and cause and effect. So the operator can determine whether cues provided by the control system are accurate or not.
