1 TRAINING SOFTWARE FOR SAFEGUARDS AT FUEL FABRICATION PLANTS Na Young Lee 1), Byung Marn Koh 1), Susan Pickett 2) 1) Korea Institute of Nuclear Non-proliferation and Control 2) International Atomic Energy Agency ABSTRACT In 2013, the International Atomic Energy Agency, Department of Safeguards, applied safeguards in 180 States with safeguards agreements in force, with implementation of safeguards at over 600 facilities. To support the Department of Safeguards in fulfilling its mission, the Training Section holds over 100 training courses yearly to help inspectors and analysts develop the necessary knowledge, skills and abilities. An effective training program must be able to adapt and respond to changing organizational training needs. Virtual training technologies have the potential to broaden the spectrum of possible training activities, enhance the effectiveness of existing courses, optimize off-site training and activities, and possibly increase trainee motivation and accelerate learning. Ultimately, training is about preparation - being ready to perform in different environments, under a range of conditions or unknown situations. Virtual environments provide this opportunity for the trainee to encounter and train under different scenarios not possible in real facilities. This paper describes the training software developed for fuel fabrication facilities to be used by both IAEA inspectors and national inspectors. The model includes interactive modules to explain each of the six main fuel fabrication processes. It also includes verification instruments at specific locations with animations that illustrate how to operate the instrument, verify the material and report the result. Additionally, the software contains an evaluation mode to allow the trainee and the instructor to track progress and evaluate learning. Overall, the model can be used for individual training, or integrated into a training course where the instructor can draw on the virtual model to enhance the overall effectiveness of the training. INTRODUCTION In the document STR-377 Development and Implementation Support Programme for Nuclear Verification published by the International Atomic Energy Agency, Department of Safeguards, the ability to deploy the required expertise and skills to continue to fulfil the IAEA s mandate(s) is clearly identified as a key capability that the Department of Safeguards needs to achieve its strategic objectives. Maintaining and developing the

2 capability of its national inspectors is also a priority for the Republic of Korea (ROK). To this end, developing training tools using advanced methods such as virtual reality and immersive training is a key achievement target for both the IAEA and the Republic of Korea. Since 2011, the Republic of Korea has hosted the IAEA training course Comprehensive Inspection Exercise at Bulk Handling Facilities (LFFP) at the fuel fabrication plant in ROK. In the process of organising this course, ensuring that the facility was available for training represents a challenge for security, confidentiality, and commercial operation reasons. As such ROK agreed to develop a virtual reality based training software as a task of the Korean Member State Support Program: Development of Virtual Training for Bulk Handling Facilities. The objective of this task is to develop a computerized model of a bulk handling facility (BHF) in order to help the trainee better understand how nuclear materials are processed and safeguarded at this type of facility, to visualize the basic operations/layout of the given type of facility before inspection and to help them review key verification activities for a BHF. Under this task, we focused on developing a software complementing the LFFP course, and on modelling the facility to help trainee become familiar with the real facility prior to attending the course. Under the task, the overall fuel fabrication facility was modelled including nuclear material flow, processes, essential equipment and key safeguards measures. The development and specific features are described below. DEVELOPMENT OF THE SOFTWARE MODULE When we developed the virtual environment for the fuel fabrication plant, we chose to model the fuel fabrication process for pressurized water reactors (PWRs). Prior to building the model, the team reviewed the technical steps for fuel fabrication, the way the facility is operated, the safeguards approaches for fuel fabrication plants, and then mapped how technical steps and safeguards activities relevant to each step are connected. The PWR fuel fabrication process starts with the receipt of UF 6 cylinders at the facility and it ends by shipping the fuel assemblies to the nuclear power plants. Considering the safeguards approach for fuel fabrication plant, we divided the facility by six areas: UF 6 cylinder storage, UO 2 powder fabrication, pellet fabrication, rod and assembly fabrication and an interim storage. The Safeguards measures Since the objective of the course includes training safeguards inspectors on nuclear material flow through the facility, on processes involving nuclear material and on key safeguards measures, the model introduces safeguards features and activities as well as a general overview of the fuel fabrication process from both technical and safeguards standpoints. Thus material balance area (MBA), key measurements points (KMP) and other strategic points used for nuclear material accountancy, (flow and inventory) are modelled, in

3 consistency with the Facility Attachment. This was done by graphically presenting on the left side of the screen a process flow chart describing fuel fabrication and associated accountancy structure, allowing users to click on each process step in order to obtain information on activities taking place at this specific step both operational and safeguardsrelated. Verification Methods Handled in the Software Verification activities defined in the model are based, in general, on the generic safeguards approach for fuel fabrication plant. This includes various verification methods: identification (Method A), weighing (Method B), sampling & analysis (Method D), variables test by Non- Destructive Assay(NDA) (Method F), Attribute test by NDA (Method H) and item counting (Method I). Each activity requires specific safeguards equipment such as: Inspector Multi-channel Gamma Analyzer (with germanium detector) (IMCG), Inspector Multi-channel Gamma Analyzer (with sodium-iodide detector) (IMCN), Mini Multi Channel Gamma Analyzer (with sodium-iodide detector) (MMCN), Hand-held Monitor system V (HM-5), Uranium Neutron Collar (UNCL), and Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge (ULTG). This model details how to assemble and use the equipment. This is done with a pop-up window for each piece of equipment, describing the principles, usage and reporting methods. Figure 1.3D model of the Nuclear Fuel Fabrication plant with safeguards features

4 Structure of the Software A three-dimensional model is used to show the whole facility at a glance. Users are able to access and wander through each process room using standard 3D model navigation methods. Furthermore, the model has a zoom-in/out function allowing users to freely control the perspective. There are two tabs in the left side as shown in the figure 1. Once the user clicks on a tab, the overall process and each key measurement points are shown. By clicking the tabs in the diagram, the user will move directly to the corresponding location of the model facility. On the right side of the screen, there are navigation buttons that allow the user to change the perspective. The pop-up window displays the verification equipment used at this location. For example, the figure 2 presents in the corresponding popup window how the Uranium Neutron Coincidence Collar (UNCL) is used for measuring the U235 enrichment in a fuel assembly. Figure 2.Example: Guide of the verification equipment The Training and Evaluation Mode

5 When we developed the software, we also considered two modes: Training and Evaluation. In the Training mode, the user or trainee is guided through all phases of the fuel fabrication plant and provided with detailed descriptions of what to do. The Evaluation mode can be used for self-assessment. In this mode, the trainee would be given a verification task by the instructor, such as weighing nuclear material or NDA measurement. Unlike the Training mode, the Evaluation mode does not include guiding information. Thus the trainee must carry out the task without further information. At the end of the task, the software provides the log report on all activities the trainee performed. Then the instructor can check the log report to see the trainee s performance. We are still testing and developing this mode to ensure that it properly addresses the learning styles of the trainees and meets the learning objectives of the training. CONCLUSION This model and other virtual reality based models are effective tools for trainers and trainees to better understand how nuclear materials are processed and safeguarded in a fuel fabrication facility. They can also be used to capture experience and knowledge gained on safeguards implementation at each of the steps of fuel fabrication, or to prepare an inspection in a facility in an integrated manner. The virtual bulk handling facility model has been initially tested in training courses to gather feedback from experienced safeguards staff in order to improve the visualisation and the user friendliness of the product and to verify the accuracy of the model. This feedback is extremely positive and demonstrates that such tools can effectively contribute to the key issue maintaining and developing the capability of inspectors for effective safeguards implementation.
