Electronics & Instrumentation Group [EIG]
& Instrumentation Group consists of
Real Time Systems Division (RSTD), Instrumentation and Control Division,
Electronics and Instrumentation
Division and Security & Innovative Sensors Division.
The major activities of the group are
Development of Full Scope, Replica type PFBR Operator Training Simulator, providing & management of Computing & Data Communication Facilities
Design & Development of Electronic Instrumentation & Control systems for Nuclear Reactors.
Design & Development of Innovative Instruments at low cost.
Instrumentation Group is actively involved in the
development of Instrumentation & Control for the 500 MWe Prototype Fast Breeder
Reactor. Towards this the I&C systems are designed with safety and availability
of the reactor as the guiding requirements through redundant systems and also
keeping in mind the simplicity of design and maintainability. A judicious
combination of hardwired and computer based I&C systems, state-of-the-art
design, manufacturing processes and testing were employed in the design of I&C
systems. The systems developed include safety critical, safety related and non
safety I&C systems. The Prototype systems were qualified after rigorous
environmental, EMI/EMC and seismic testing. The application software developed
was subjected to thorough Verification & Validation procedures.
The Group is also developing a full scope replica type Operator Training Simulator for PFBR. An advanced visualization centre was established and various PFBR systems are modeled for visualization in 3D and walkthrough. R&D activities in the areas of innovative instrumentation using pulsating sensors, Wireless Sensor Networks for use in future reactors, computational intelligence, knowledge management etc. are in progress. State-of-the art computational facilities with a total processing power of about 30 tera FLOPS and data communication facilities are being provided. To take care of the security challenges the security electronics systems are constantly deployed and upgraded
