Actual Plant Behavior

The Same Netmation Software and Database as an Actual Plant

To facilitate effective operational training, the same Netmation software (operator station (OPS), engineering & maintenance station (EMS), and accessory station (ACS)) are used in the simulator as in an actual plant.

The simulator can also use the same logic and graphic database as an actual plant to allow prior verification of updated control logic and training for maintenance of parameter tuning.

Various Types of Simulators to Meet All Kinds of Needs

Full Replica Type Simulator

A simulator with exactly the same devices and layout as an actual central unit.

Panorama Simulator

This simulator is equipped with a large wide screen to display the status of the whole plant.

You can confirm how the system reacts to your operation and changing logic at a glance on a large wide screen as if the system were real.


Compact Type Simulator

The layout of this simulator is smaller than a full replica type but it keeps the operability of the full replica type.

Desk Side Type Simulator

This is a compact simulator that lets you perform all kinds of monitoring and operations on CRT monitors.

The same control logic and plant models are used as for the other types of simulators to facilitate full-scale training.

This simulator is easy to introduce because the installation location is flexible and the initial cost is low.


Simulator Functions

Simulators from Mitsubishi Power have various features to support training and verification.

Instructor Console Function

Instructor Console Function
  • Reset
    An initial state of a plant can be created and registered beforehand to be set up in a simulator.
  • Run/Freeze
    You can switch the status of simulation between Run (running) and Freeze (pausing).
  • Snapshot
    You can temporarily save the current state of a plant.
  • Backtrack
    The state of a plant can be automatically saved every two minutes and you can switch back to a previous state.
  • Changing the simulation speed
    You can speed up or slow down the simulation speed during simulation.
  • Malfunction
    You can simulate an abnormal plant state to practice troubleshooting.

Operator Support Functions

  • Operational guide
  • Interlock monitoring
  • Model visualization function
