U.S. DOE – Simulator Training System

U.S. DOE – Simulator Training System

For the Department of Energy of United States our Italian Partner Illogic has developed a state-of-the-art, 3D real time virtual reality immersive training systems (ITS), connected to a high-fidelity dynamic simulator, all integrated in a control room environment for IGCC power plant.


The Department of Energy of the United States organizes training courses for IGCC orientation directed to engineers and managers. This courses introduce trainees to the IGCC simulator, process, and controls. During the training, trainees startup and shutdown the simulated unit in an integrated manner and will be exposed to simple and complex unit malfunctions in the control room and in the field. Trainees spend 40% of the time in the classroom and 60% of the time interacting with the operation and immersive training simulators.


  • “Team operation module”: it is the main module and allows Trainees to train in teams
  • Instructor station: events are driven by the Instructor who monitors how Trainees behave and react to simulated situations
  • Simulation of risky situations and incidents
  • Environmental Condition Simulation
  • After action Review” allows review and follow-up on training sessions to reach higher efficacy levels
  • Connection to 3rd party Chemical-Physical Simulator
  • Immersivity and stereoscopy
