A time domain approach to robust fault detection of linear time-varying systems. (English) Zbl 1154.93341

Summary: This paper gives the optimal solutions to several robust fault detection problems such as \(\mathcal H_{-}/\mathcal H_\infty , \mathcal H_{2}/\mathcal H_\infty \) and \(\mathcal H_\infty /\mathcal H_\infty \) problems for linear time-varying systems in a time domain, which extends the previous results on linear time-invariant systems in a frequency domain. It is shown that all three problems have the same optimal detection filter and the filter is a simple observer obtained by solving a standard differential Riccati equation. Finally, an example is given to illustrate our results.
