On nonlinear systems diagnosis using differential and algebraic methods. (English) Zbl 1167.93010

Summary: We tackle the diagnosis problem in nonlinear systems under failure using differential algebra. Three examples are presented in order to apply the proposed methodology. Numerical simulations of these examples are presented to illustrate the effectiveness of the suggested approach.
