    Abstract

    The paper focuses on the reporting of the Loviisa and Olkiluoto reference test results. Conclusions have been drawn with regard of the systems usability of the hybrid control room (CR) and human-system interfaces (HSIs). Specifically, we have evaluated the role of different information sources (e.g., conventional analogue panels, large-screen overview displays, and workstation screens) in supporting situation awareness and communication and coordination of activities between operators. We have also acquired knowledge and insights of the goals, constraints and design principles in the development of procedures and their integration with other components of the CR HSIs. At the end of the paper, some implications of the findings of the reference tests are discussed.
