4 Advanced Main Control Board and Integrated Digital Control and Protection System Compact console panels are adopted in the advanced main control board to accomplish all monitoring and operations by touch screen displays. The operational 2 The Advanced Accumulator: A New Passive ECCS Component of the APWR 35 Fig. 4 Advanced main control board (prototype) switches of the plant components and the necessary operation information are consolidated on the screen to improve the operators’ performance as shown in Fig.

The current 4-loop PWR has two trains of injection systems, conventional accumulators, and a refueling water storage pit outside of the containment vessel. The APWR has some improvements, which include the following: 1. Four trains of the injection system composed of simplified pipe routing for higher reliability 2. Four Advanced Accumulators that allow for the elimination of low-head safety injection pumps 3. An in-containment refueling water storage pit located in the containment vessel for higher reliability Thus, the current ECCS is composed of the accumulator injection system with conventional accumulators, a low-head injection subsystem, and a high-head injection subsystem.

The HPCS of the conventional BWR is initiated at level 2, namely, simultaneously with the RCIC, which is unnecessarily in a loss of feedwater transient. This results in reducing human error probability (HEP) and enhances safety, although these are not modeled prudently in level 1 PSA. Adoption of New Design Main Control Panel and Instrument and Control (I&C) Technologies The ABWR adopts a newly designed main control panel using a state-of-the-art I&C system, named A-PODIATM (Advanced Plant Operation by Display Information and Automation).
