Large screen displays (LSDs) are becoming more popular in nuclear power plant control rooms (NPP CRs). Especially, they play an important role in digital CRs based on desktop-based workstations in the presentation of the essential information of the system. In the present paper, our aim is to present the results of design workshops in which operators, trainers and designers from the two Finnish NPPs outlined the role of LSDs in supporting operators’ activity in the CR environment. According to participants, LSDs have four different functions in NPP CRs. They are necessary in digital CRs for getting an overall view of what is going on, and they help operators to maintain an accurate situation awareness of the state of the power process. In addition, they help operators to pay attention to relevant new information and support cooperation, communication and coordination. Based on the results of the workshops, a preliminary LSD concept will be presented.
