Critical States of Nuclear Power Plant Reactors and Bilinear Modeling
We present a new system methodology for modeling of nonlinear processes in nuclear power plant cores. This methodology makes use of a variety of different approaches from different mathematical fields. The problem of modeling critical states is reduced to a bilinear subproblem. A scheme which provides stable parameter identification and adaptive control for the nuclear nuclear power plant described by the bilinear differential equation is presented. Abnormal events are found via a system-theoretical approach. Transitions to critical states can be detected by bilinear analysis of observed characteristics and by optimization of sensory measurements. Latent conditions and critical parameters in the reactor core are estimated trough a bilinear modeling.
