One of our competitors, L-3 MAPPS, issues a periodic brochure on their products. In issue 45, of January 2018, on page 12, there is a discussion of some of the challenges which they (and Singer) faced in the early days of power plant simulation.
To see this, click here, then go down to page 12.

There is a nuclear plant which is being rented out for shooting movies. See here. The power plant itself is described here.
An article about small modular nuclear reactors appears here. It mentions Ft. St. Vrain - Singer bid on that simulator in the early 1970s. A historical summary of the plant, which shows the teething troubles with a new technology, is here.
A video of an exercise on a nuclear plant simulator.
A history of Systems Engineering Laboratories, the manufacturer of a series of computers used in many simulators, especially on the commercial side, is here and here and here. One SEL was repurposed as a game computer. (06/17/2020)
