In the Navy nuclear power world we constantly ran drills in the plants. We tried to not affect the rest of the ship, but sometimes you couldn't help it. We'd actually do stuff too and not simulate it - things like loss of part of the electrical distribution, tripping turbine generators, we'd even scram a reactor every so often and see how quickly the watch team reacted and handled it.
