Abstract
THE APPLICATION OF FUZZY SET THEORY TO AUTOMATIC CONTROL HAS BEEN SHOWN TO AFFECT HIGH-QUALITY RELIABLE CONTROLS IN APPLICATIONS PERTINENT TO NUCLEAR POWER PLANT EQUIPMENT. A SCHEME IS DEVELOPED HERE BASED ON INCORPORATION OF SOFTWARE-TOLERANT METHODS TO ENSURE HIGH RELIABILITY OF SOFTWARE. APPLICATIONS OF THE METHOD TO CENTRIFUGAL PUMPS AND HEAT EXCHANGERS WILL BE SELECTED TO DEMONSTRATE THE VIABILITY OF A REDUNDANT TECHNIQUE USING FUZZY AND DETERMINISTIC CONTROLS. THE WORK IS AIMED AT DEVELOPMENT OF A METHODOLOGY TO ENSURE RELIABILITY OF CONTROL SYSTEMS WHEN THEY INTERACT OR BECOME PART OF THE PLANT PROTECTION SYSTEM. THIS IS A STEP TOWARDS PROVIDING AUTONOMY IN CONTROLLING COMPLEX PROCESSES SUCH AS NUCLEAR REACTORS.
