A procedure is presented here to design optimal noninteracting control system for a coupled core nuclear reactor. The optimal feedback coefficients are computed by minimizing a quadratic performance index. Nuclear reactors have inaccessible state variables corresponding to concentration of delayed neutrons. A method is given to reconstruct these inaccessible state variables which are essential for feedback to obtain noninteracting control system.
