An Overview of the Modular Modeling System (MMS) Code and Applications
The Modular Modeling System was developed by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) to supplement large systems analysis codes like TRAC, RELAP, and RETRAN in the areas of (1) scoping safety analysis of Emergency events, (2) analysis of Upset and Normal events, (3) analysis and design of the plant and control system, (4) component specification, and (5) simulator qualification. MMS includes pre-engineered models of most components in the BOP and primary for conventional LWR plants.
