Control Approach to Nuclear Safety


Despite the advantages of nuclear technology to mankind, it attendance accident is always catastrophic. In this work, the energy balance equations associated with nuclear technology are structured in parametric form to form the basis of our Mathematical model solvable by the Conjugate Gradient Method (CGM).
