Nuclear power plants are a paramount example of critical cyber-physical systems. Some of the current researches in nuclear reactor analysis concern the degree of acceptable uncertainty of the whole system.

Abstract

Nuclear power plants are a paramount example of critical cyber-physical systems. Some of the current researches in nuclear reactor analysis concern the degree of acceptable uncertainty of the whole system. Some difficulties arise from weaving fields of different disciplines, such as computer science (e.g. embedded software and hardware), mechatronics (e.g. sensors and actuators) and physics (e.g. neutronics and thermal-hydraulics). To complicate the scenario further, each field demands different disciplines, competencies and different teams. In this short paper, we highlight the importance of the cross-fertilization of different disciplines in the nuclear reactor domain and we investigate emerging methods to control uncertainty in the nuclear reactor design.
