Abstract

In this paper, a model predictive controller is developed for controlling the main primary circuit dynamics of pressurized water nuclear power plants during load-change transients. The hybrid model of the plant is successfully embedded into a non-hybrid discrete time LPV form. The designed controller is able to handle the hard constraints for the state and input variables while keeping the plant stable and producing satisfactory time-domain behavior.
