Optimal fault detection for linear discrete time-varying systems. (English) Zbl 1204.93078

Summary: This paper deals with the problem of observer-based fault detection for Linear Discrete Time-Varying (LDTV) systems. A problem formulation is first proposed to address the optimization of the Fault Detection Filter (FDF) design, which is expressed in terms of maximizing a finite horizon \(H_\infty/H_\infty\) or \(H_-/H_\infty\) performance index. This formulation can be applied to FDF design of LDTV systems subject to \(l_{2}\)-norm bounded unknown inputs or stochastic noise sequences. It is shown that a unified optimal solution to the FDF can be obtained by solving the discrete time Riccati equation and the optimal FDF is not unique. A numerical example is given to illustrate the proposed method.
