Computer simulation was performed on a cognitive experiment of abnormal event identification in a nuclear power plant. The process of identification has been modeled as similarity matching of symptomatic patterns and hypothesis validation by symptom observation. As a result of comparison, the simulation could explain behaviors of the subjects generally well, and some characteristics of operator's cognitive processes have been revealed.
