At present, DCS is widely used as the control system for nuclear power plants both at home and abroad, which prompting many companies to research the technology of DCS debugging. In this paper, taking a certain nuclear power plant within China for reference, the virtual DCS debugging and research platform which based on the full-scope nuclear power plant simulation model is developed. It was developed by first establishing a simulation model on the RINSIM Simulation Platform and ordering a customized set of virtual DCS system, then developing a communication program between the simulation model and the virtual DCS system. Users can observe the actual effects and results if following the pre-designed testing procedures after the configuration of control logics, HMI (Human Machine Interface) and I/O communication interfaces. The virtual DCS platform is aimed at assisting with technology research of DCS project for similar nuclear power plants and also can provide professional training for associated personnel of nuclear power plant.
