In this Note the control problem of linearized coupled-core multivariable nuclear reactors is treated by using a recent exact model matching technique in the frequency domain. The case of state feedback control is first considered and then the results are used where only the output variables of the reactor are available for feedback. A numerical example of a three-coupled-core nuclear reactor model with one delayed neutron group for each core and short neutron travel time between cores is included.
