A CSA Model-Based Nuclear Power Plant Consultant

W. E. Underwood

An experimental computer-based nuclear power plant consultant is described. The inference procedures interpret observations of a particular plant situation in terms of a commonsense algorithm network model that characterizes the normal and abnormal events of a pressurized water reactor plant. This paper discusses the knowledge and control structures, and illustrates the operation of the system with situations from the accident at Three Mile Island.
