Poor control of U-tube steam generators (UTSG) in a nuclear power plant can lead to frequent reactor shutdowns or damage of turbine blades. The dynamics of steam generator vary as power level changes. There is, therefore, a need to systematically design a suitable controller for all power levels. In this paper, we employ the concepts of both predictive control and fuzzy set theory to design an appropriate control for UTSG water level. The controller has three main parts: (1) a TSK fuzzy model used for predict…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
