A fuzzy control algorithm of bell-type membership functions and 9 rules is constructed for narrow range level control of steam generators in nuclear power plants. It is implemented at a field digital distributed controller, a Westinghouse-made controller called Westinghouse Distributed Processing Family(WDPF). Performance for level control of the developed fuzzy controller is compared with that of conventional controller, both at the field controller. For these comparisons, both the fuzzy control algorithm and the conventional PI control algorithm were carefully tuned. Also the sampling time for optimal performance was investigated. The results show that the fuzzy control algorithm is not only better in performance than the conventional algorithm but also much easier to be tuned by operators in the field.
