The development of nuclear power plant simulators is a hard task where many different factors have to be considered. Software components can be a main factor in the improvement of the development cycle of complex simulators. This paper presents a new generation of simulators based on two different component technologies. On the one hand, RT-CORBA is a communication middleware, which allows the development of predictable real-time applications taking benefit from CORBA features. On the other hand, CCA is a new component model for scientific components, which allows high performance computing needed for these simulators
