The paper describes a program for the development and testing of a model of cognitive processes intended for simulation of operator responses to plant disturbances. It will be a part of a computer program complex called DYLAM for automatic identification of accident scenarios to be included in a PRA, probabilistic risk analysis. The selection of operator tasks to include is discussed with reference to PRA. Main elements in the proposed model are a representation of 'the perfect operator' in terms of a data base including the trained operators' repertoire of task sequences.Different ways to develop this data base is proposed. The human element is introduced in the model by a perturbation function derived from human error modes.A Program for testing the model in briefly mentioned.
