Abstract: The Modular Modeling System (MMS) developed by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) provides an efficient, economical, and user friendly computer code to engineers involved in the analysis of nuclear and fossil power plants. MMS will complement existing codes in the areas of nuclear and fossil power plant systems simulation. This paper provides a synopsis of MMS code features, development objectives, usage and results of fossil and nuclear plant simulation.
