Safety regulations for nuclear reactor control are very strict, which makes it difficult to implement new control techniques. One such technique could be fuzzy logic control (FLC), which can provide very desirable advantages over classical control, like robustness, adaptation and the capability to include human experience into the controller. Simple fuzzy logic controllers have been implemented for a few nuclear research reactors, among which the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) research reactor  in 1988 and the first Belgian reactor (BR1)  in 1998, though only on a temporal basis.
