The On-line Operator Aid SYStem (OASYS) has been developed to support the operator's decision making process and to ensure the safety of a nuclear power plant by providing operators with proper guidelines in a timely manner, according to the plant operation mode. The OASYS consists of four systems such as a signal validation and management system (SVMS), a plant monitoring system (PMS), an alarm filtering and diagnostic system (AFDS), and a dynamic emergency procedure tracking system (DEPTS). The SVMS and the PMS help operators to maintain a plant in a condition to withstand the adverse-events during a normal operation condition. The AFDS covers the abnormal events until it exceeds the limit range of reactor trip signals, while after a reactor trip, the DEPTS aids operators with proper guidelines so as to shut down safely. The OASYS uses a rule-based expert system and fuzzy logic. The rule-based expert system is used to classify the predefined events and track the emergency operating procedures (EOPs) through data processing, and the fuzzy logic is used to generate the conceptual high-level alarms for the prognostic diagnosis and to evaluate the qualitative fuzzy criteria used in the EOPs. Evaluation results show that the OASYS is capable of diagnosing plant abnormal conditions and providing operators appropriate guidelines with fast response time and consistency. The proposed system is implemented on a SUN-4/75 workstation using C language and Quintus prolog language. Currently, the OASYS is installed in the real-time full scope simulator for validation. After sufficient validation, the OASYS will be installed in the main control room for the unit one nuclear power plant at Young Gwang.
