Advanced nuclear reactors offer a new set of features to energy generation, due to their ability to adapt to variable energy demand, operate autonomously, be deployed in rural locations and monitored remotely, afford compact size and lower power ratings, and rely on novel technologies to achieve safer operations. The highly autonomous and dynamic nature of advanced nuclear reactors, as well as their potential abilities to operate remotely, necessitates more powerful forms of control, including the use of intelligent and adaptable control to track changing power demands, make autonomous decisions, and reduce or optimize the need for human involvement. This panel aims to discuss how the advanced nuclear reactor community are developing advanced control methods to meet their unique requirements.
