About this book

Control analysis and design of large nuclear reactors requires a suitable mathematical model representing the steady state and dynamic behavior of the reactor with reasonable accuracy. This task is, however, quite challenging because of several complex dynamic phenomena existing in a reactor. Quite often, the models developed would be of prohibitively large order, non-linear and of complex structure not readily amenable for control studies. Moreover, the existence of simultaneously occurring dynamic variations at different speeds makes the mathematical model susceptible to numerical ill-conditioning, inhibiting direct application of standard control techniques. This monograph introduces a technique for mathematical modeling of large nuclear reactors in the framework of multi-point kinetics, to obtain a comparatively smaller order model in standard state space form thus overcoming these difficulties. It further brings in innovative methods for controller design for systems exhibiting multi-time-scale property, with emphasis on three-time-scale systems.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This research monograph is composed of topics on Multipoint Kinetics Modeling of Large Nuclear Reactors, Output Feedback Control Design, Multiparameter Singular Perturbation of Linear Optimal Regulators, Direct Block Diagonalization and Composite Control of Three-Time-Scale Systems, and Design of Fast Output Sampling Controller for Three-Time-Scale Systems. … For those working in nuclear engineering field interested in designing controllers for reactors, this monograph serves as a good reference.” (Amazon.com, May, 2013)
