Abstract

This thesis explores the development of a model describing the Annular Core Research Reactor (ACRR), the application of the inverse kinetics method to calculate the current reactivity level within the ACRR model, and the development of a PID compensator to automatically control the reactivity level within the model and thus controlling the power level.
