One of the lessons learned from Fukushima accident is that the existing procedures used in Nuclear Power Plants (NPPs) are not executed effectively and quickly enough after such an extended accident, for the accident is complex and people are too nervous in such a situation. Thus, emergency system that helps to raise diagnosis efficiency is necessary. In the paper, a quick diagnosis system on injection estimation of reactor core recovery and decay heat removal injection estimation is developed to meet the urgent needs and strengthen requirements for the training and application among utilities and nuclear regulators. The system will assist regulators to quickly know whether the currently flow will probably recover the reactor core, or whether the current injection capacity is sufficient to quench and recover the reactor core, directly after input present parameters into the system. In the system, Matlab method is used, and intuitive insights are considered, which is propitious to give immediate graphical interface and reduce possibility of human error.
