Isolation and handling of actuator faults in nonlinear systems. (English) Zbl 1138.93330

Summary: This work considers the problem of control actuator fault detection and isolation and fault-tolerant control for a multi-input multi-output nonlinear system subject to constraints on the manipulated inputs and proposes a fault detection and isolation filter and controller reconfiguration design. The implementation of the fault detection and isolation filters and reconfiguration strategy are demonstrated via a chemical process example.
