    A new system has been developed for the self-access studying of the power plant operation. The system consists of a simulator, plant operation system, instructor application and student application. The instructor application includes tools for the management of students and courses, execution of example task by simulator, definition of the feedback criteria and preparation of the malfunction pointing. With the student application the user can execute exercises, get immediate feedback from his performance and see the total status of his progress. The system can be used without a supervising person, specific room and according to the users own schedule. With the system the control education is effectively based on the learning-by-doing method in the real circumstances. In this paper the structure and function of the system and some practical examples are presented.
