This guide provides guidelines for the organization' of
fossil-fueled power generating plant alarm and monitoring
information into types and categories, taking into consideration
information usefulness and limitations.
This guide further serves to establish guidelines for
correlating type and category of alarm and monitoring information
with the appropriate information-display devices.
Adherence to the categorization and the corresponding
information-display techniques presents prioritized alarm and
monitoring information to the operator which is appropriately
proportioned between the window annunciator, CRT, mimic display,
and printer. This also permits a reduction in the number of window
annunciators over historic practices.
Purpose. It is the purpose of this guide to
define the logical classifications for categories of plant
information and to identify display techniques available for
monitoring and reporting this information to plant personnel. Use
of this guide will:
(1) Aid engineers in achieving a balanced and integrated design
in alarm monitoring systems
(2) Assist control-room operator, supervisory, and training
(3) Improve proficiency of control room operators
(4) Enhance plant generating station safety, efficiency, and
