  • Human factors engineering incorporated into the Carolina Power &amp;amp; Light Company's nuclear power plant control panel modifications

    The authors present the approach used at Carolina Power and Light's nuclear power plants that has incorporated human-factors engineering into their plant modification process. An HFE (human-factors engineering) design guide or HFE specification is developed, which is used by the design engineers or plant engineering support groups in the preparation of plant modifications. The procedure provided in the design guide first identifies the function and characteristics of the modified/ne components. When the component type is identified, guidance is provided on the acceptable location of the component, component parameters, and labels. The human-factors guidelines included in the document are taken from applicable criteria on NUREG 0700 (US Nuclear Regulatory Commission control-room design guidelines).<<ETX>>

  • Reliability estimation of neural networks with human factors under emergency of nuclear power plant

    Recently, people do not pay attention to the events arised from human factors until human factors events occur more and more frequent. In this paper, the authors take nuclear power plant as reference background and propose a particular neural network model for emergency with human factors. The model comprises of three assessment parts. For each part, the authors come up with specific function in order to assess human factors error probability of emergency. The proposed methods are tested by experiments. From results of experiments, we can easily see that human factors error probability is precise and reliable in the model, that the proposed method is more accurate than a single weibull function, that which active function is better, and that which tolerance is minimum. The method can be applied to human factors reliability analysis in emergency of nuclear power plant and has a great significance for safety accidents in nuclear power plant.

  • Current human factors standards development efforts within IEEE

    Since 1980, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has supported the development of human factors standards. Within the IEEE, Subcommittee 7 (SC-7) of the Nuclear Power Engineering Committee (NPEC) develops and maintains human factors standards. Members of SC-7, Human Factors and Control Facilities, have extensive expertise in the human factors of nuclear generating facilities. NPEC provides funding for standards development or revision, oversees the activities of SC-7, and has power of approval for standards produced by NPEC subcommittees. IEEE Std 1023-1988 is an upper tier document which defines the human factors tasks required to support the integration of human performance into the design process. The standard was reaffirmed in January 1995 and is to be revised within the next two years. Presently, three lower tier documents, in various stages of development, expand upon the upper tier standard. IEEE Std 845-1988 (in revision) presents methods for measurement of human performance. IEEE Std 1082 (final approval pending) deals with the human reliability analysis aspects of probabilistic risk assessment. IEEE Std 1289 (final approval pending) presents human factors guidance for design of computer-based display systems. In addition to producing and maintaining human factors standards, SC-7 has sponsored a series of conferences on human factors in power plants. "Human Factors in Power Generation: A Global Perspective", continues the series.

  • Improving control room design and operations based on human factors analyses or how much human factors upgrade is enough?

    The Jose Cabrera nuclear power plant is a one loop Westinghouse pressurized water reactor. In the control room, the displays and controls used by operators for the emergency operating procedures are distributed on front and back panels. This configuration contributed to risk in the probabilistic safety assessment where important operator actions are required. This study was undertaken to evaluate the impact of the design on crew performance and plant safety and to develop design improvements. Five potential effects were identified. Then NUREG-0711, programmatic, human factors, analyses were conducted to systematically evaluate the CR-layout to determine if there was evidence of the potential effects. These analyses included operating experience review, PSA review, task analyses, and walkthrough simulations. Based on the results of these analyses, a variety of control room modifications were identified. From the alternatives, a selection was made that provided a reasonable balance between performance, risk and economics, and modifications were made to the plant.

  • Body scanning technology: An Early Human Factors Analysis

    In March 2009, QinetiQ conducted an Early Human Factors Analysis (EHFA) on behalf of the UK Department for Transport (DfT) for the implementation of body scanning technology in the airport security screening context. EHFA is a well- established technique, used extensively as part of UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) acquisition. This was the first time EHFA was used in the security domain. The aim of EHFA is to provide an early indication of where key Human Factors (HF) issues and risks associated with body scanners lie so that mitigation strategies can be developed. EHFA is structured around seven Human Factors Domains ranging from Manpower and Training to System Safety and Human Factors Engineering.

  • IEEE Draft Human Factors Guide for Applications of Computerized Operating Procedure Systems at Nuclear Power Generating Stations and Other Nuclear Facilities.

    This document provides guidance for the application of Computerized Operating Procedure Systems (COPS). This guidance concerns the design (i.e., form and function) and use of COPS. In general, this guide does not concern itself with the technical content of the operating procedures being presented except as needed to address unique aspects of procedure implementation on COPS. Software tools that can be described as computerized procedures but are implemented outside the control room (such as might be used for maintenance or testing) are also beyond the scope of this document.

  • Human factors improvements to technical specifications of nuclear control rooms

    The authors describe an industrywide effort to improve the primary operating document of nuclear power plants, technical specifications. The Human Factors Improvement to Technical Specifications working group was formed to develop a single industry treatment of human-factors issues. THe group was chartered to identify human-factors problems with the existing organization and format of technical specifications and to recommend improvements. Three independent user surveys identified technical specifications to be ambiguous, technically incomplete, and different to interpret and use. The inability to cross- reference information was cited as the most critical issue. All human-factors recommendations were based on consideration of the most frequent, time- constrained, and critical user of technical specifications: the control-room operator. Proven principles from documentation research were used to enhance user ability to locate needed information, increase comprehension, and reduce procedural errors.<<ETX>>
