The article deals with the aspects of training program for future specialists of nuclear power plants. This program is realized at NPP Department of Ivanovo State Power University and Kalinin NPP. The usage of computer and simulation modeling at the university and the program «8’th term» are the main components of this concept. In the context of the «8’th term» students study at the training unit of the station. They get practical skills in the workshops and pass the exams. Computer modeling is used for numerical experiments on the kinetics of nuclear reactors in Mathcad. The complex of programs and methodological support for simulation of transients in nuclear reactors are designed. The mathematical model for determining the xenon stability in a nuclear reactor is described in detail. The numerical experiments on modeling of xenon oscillations in a nuclear reactor are carried out. The simulation results agree with the results of pilot experiments. Simulation modeling of the technological processes is carried out on the computer and full’scale simulator of WWER’1000. The programs and methodological support for the simulation on the computer and full’scale simulator of neutron’physical reactor measurements and the start’up ‘ shutdown process are designed too. A thorough knowledge of physical experiment techniques during university study is one of the most urgent tasks in training for future specialists. The training complex contributes to form professional thinking. Also it is an effective means of personal forming for the future specialist. The proposed approach allows reducing the adaptation terms for graduates in their workplaces.
