    Abstract

    This paper introduces iMAPS, the intelligent monitoring assessment panel system used by nuclear electricity generator British Energy in the UK. A multi-agent system design was chosen for this system and the paper describes why this technique was chosen and shows how this will allow the project to meet the short-term goals of the sponsor whilst providing a foundation for a plant-wide analysis system. Experience of building the initial stage of this system is also included, along with observations on the agent-based approach. The system was developed by the Institute for Energy and Environment at the University of Strathclyde and is in use by British Energy Generation.
