Conference paper


The DSD (Dynamic System Doctor) is system independent, stateIparameter estimation software that can be used for both point and interval estimation. The DSD also yields useful information for risk informed regulation and risk monitoring of nuclear power plants. The relationship of DSD to some conventional estimation techniques is described and illustrated using a linearized model for the on-line calibration of the constant temperature power sensor, recently proposed for direct core power density distribution measurement in Generation IV reactors.
