Glass panel simulator upgrade project
June 2014
Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant (Maryland, USA) was of one of the first sites to incorporate a full-scope glass panel simulator, or glasstop simulator, into their training program in 2010. Since then, fifteen other glass panel simulators have been developed with ThunderEdit graphical editor and delivered to American plants. Now, a comprehensive simulator upgrade contract recently awarded to Corys Thunder Inc. includes an order for the upgrade of the original Calvert Cliffs glass panel simulator graphics so they can benefit from the multiple enhancements and new features added to the editor in these years. Among others, main areas of improvement have been: graphics rendering (anti-aliasing, vector graphics, scalability), multi-touch input support, navigation, integration of fully functional digital controllers and peripheral systems and support for embedded external applications.

The new glass panel graphics are being developed in Santander by Thunder España and are scheduled to be declared Ready For Training in the fall.
