Obsolescence presents great challenge to Nuclear Power Plants (NPP) and plant simulators around the world. Old designs will have to be either modified, or replaced by new designs, in order to simplify maintenance, increase availability and meet ever-increasing operational and training requirements. Control system upgrade and Distributed Control System (DCS) design for both old plants and new builds have become the center of interest. In a DCS, communication networks connect control systems together to allow the exchange of information and feedback. Among the many communication network protocols, Ethernet can be a promising one. This paper describes a new Ethernet Bus Interface Controller (eBIC) used in the Input/Output (I/O) system of a Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) simulator in Canada.
