Abstract:

THIS RESEARCH WILL APPLY NEW ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TECHNOLOGY TO THE CONTROL, MAINTENANCE, AND SAFETY OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE EXPERT SYSTEM WILL BE TO DETERMINE OFF-NORMAL PLANT CONDITIONS AND TO GUIDE OPERATIONS PERSONNEL THROUGH A COURSE OF ACTION WHICH WOULD LEAD TO A STABLE PLANT. SOME OF THE INNOVATIVE FEATURES ARE A COMBINATION OF SPEECH AND VISION TO CAPTURE OPERATOR'S ATTENTION AND AN ADAPTIVE LEARNING CAPABILITY WHICH WILL IMPROVE THE SYSTEMS CAPABILITY WITH USE. THE PHASE I ACTIVITIES WILL INCLUDE EVALUATION OF VARIOUS EXPERT SEQUENCES, DEVELOPING A RULE BASE, TESTING A PROTOTYPE SYSTEM, AND COMPLETING A PRELIMINARY ENGINEERING DESING. UPON COMPLETION OF PHASE I, ODETICS WILL RECOMMEND A PHASE II DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM WHICH INCLUDES PARTICIPATION AND EVALUATION BY A PLANT SITE.
