Main Control Room Annunciators

Control Room Annunciators are an integral part of a nuclear plant’s main control room that alert operations staff visually and audibly when an abnormal plant condition occurs. Annunciator systems in today’s operating fleet are often original plant equipment facing mechanical fatigue (aging), component obsolescence, and limited flexibility to incorporate modern approaches to plant operations.

Main Control Room Modernization

Westinghouse has developed a modular approach to designing custom main control rooms (MCRs) as part of an instrumentation and control (I&C) system modernization program for new plant designs. The MCR modernization program comprises the human systems interface (HSI) building blocks to modernize an MCR, as well as the integration of standard, software-based HSI resources using the building-block approach. Examples of MCR configurations are based on this approach, which supports new plant construction and existing plant modernizations.
