- The Halden Reactor Project (HRP) has many years of experience in developing and evaluating principles for computer-based human-machine interfaces (HMIs). We have synthesized the lessons learned in an integrated design concept that is implemented on a boiling water reactor (BWR) simulator in the HAlden Man Machine LABoratory (HAMMLAB). The design concept is intended to alert and support the operators in monitoring and controlling the plant during normal operation, emergency situations and outages. The computer-based HMIs include an alarm system, operating displays, operating procedures and large screen displays. The design concept has been tested in a simulator study in HAMMLAB. This paper describes the design and initial testing of the computer-based emergency operating procedures (EOPs) and other displays to support the operators when using the EOPs.
