Abstract

The comparative study has been performed to examine the degree of agreement with the intuitive understanding of the senior instructors. The proposed schemes of scenario characterization have been applied to sample scenarios currently employed in BTC established for intensive training of BWR operators. The overall complexity levels have good agreement with the sum of each index, which seems to support the assumption that the complexity can be decomposed into these independent factors. The results of subjective evaluation have fairly good agreement with the characterization results by the proposed method except the Dynamism. The present results shows the effectiveness of the proposed method for the objective evaluation of the training courses.
