Fuzzy control for nuclear reactor operation – strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Documents & links


Assessment of four real fuzzy control applications at the MIT research reactor in the US, the FUGEN heavy water reactor in Japan, the BR1 research reactor in Belgium, and a TRIGA Mark III reactor in Mexico will be analyzed through an analysis of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Special attention will be paid to the current cooperation between the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre (SCK•CEN) and the Mexican Nuclear Centre (ININ) on AI-based intelligent control for nuclear reactor operation under the partial support of the National Council for Science and Technology of Mexico (CONACYT).
