DOE Wind Energy Technology Testing Facilities

 

HUMAN SYSTEM SIMULATION LABORATORY (HSSL)

The Human System Simulation Laboratory (HSSL) at Idaho National Laboratory is a reconfigurable virtual control center created to safely test new technologies before they are implemented. Building on HSSL’s original mission to simulate commercial nuclear reactor control rooms and improve their designs, the laboratory is also a virtual test bed for integrating Transmission Line - Dynamic Line Rating tools and data visualization seamlessly into electric utility control centers. HSSL supports the human performance R&D active at INL through partnerships with utilities and other public and private organizations.

KEY CAPABILITIES

  • Digital simulation environment compatible with all major control room designs and software platforms to aid in development of utility efficiency and asset management
  • Industry standard and customizable systems and protocols for operator training and evaluation
  • High-fidelity task simulated scenario to evaluate control room design integrated with Dynamic Line Rating (DLR) and accommodated operators' needs
