During a scenario resulting in the loss of fission product barriers, radioisotope transport calculations can be integrated into FRS to provide real-time evaluation into potential radiation exposures both internal to the facility and offsite. Radioisotope transport model inputs are integrated into FRS based on the accident scenarios and displayed on detailed room drawings within the plant. Offsite dispersion modeling can also be integrated into FRS based on source term and meteorological conditions. All modeled parameters can be updated in real time during an EP drill.
FRS provides customized modules to assist personnel with the ability to quickly visualize and understand current operating status, equipment unavailability, and/or failures. This allows for timelier implementation of focused mitigation strategies for incident resolution.
The RAD module is an interactive tool which uses either external radioisotope transport data or built-in models to provide real time or projected time at the click of a button based on other plant conditions that exist specific to the event or drill.
FRS-RAD is built to estimate specific plant radiological conditions based on location and pipe routings. The complex logic updates instantly to provide plant conditions. Adding RAD to an already complex system makes an FRS tool that provides risk insights to different departments at a facility.
Recovery procedures may be time-based on mechanical limits (e.g. 6 hours to deplete a cooling water storage tank); use FRS to estimate radiation intensity and potential operator dose and update procedures to minimize potential hazards
