Simulator training has proven to be the most effective means for teaching plant operations and qualifying operators. For over 30 years, TRAX has been the world’s leading supplier of high-fidelity, fossil plant operator training simulators. Our experience speaks volumes. Every TRAX simulator, ranging from our full-scope, plant-specific offerings to our generic models, includes advanced training tools and features that will prove to be essential to the achievement of your plant’s training goals.
TRAX builds simulators using the ProTRAX simulation software. Each plant-specific simulator is configured to exactly match the simulated plant, and the individual components of a model are tailored to the specific plant, resulting in a simulator that truly represents plant operation. A TRAX simulator is comprised of five major components: the Instructor Station, process models, control logic, human-machine interface (HMI), and input/output (I/O).
Operator training simulators promote safety and preparedness by enabling operators to practice in a safe environment. The ongoing training of power plant operators results in a reduced number of operator-triggered trips, more efficient startups, and potentially the prevention of major equipment damage caused by improper or inadequate operator training. TRAX has a variety of strategies to help increase safety, knowledge, and efficiency through different forms of training.
Each simulator is now delivered with a “Remote Manager” installed to enhance the training capabilities of the simulator. The Remote Manager is designed to run on most simulator computers to give the trainee control of simulator operations without the need to login to the Instructor Station.
