Generic properties and control of linear structured systems: a survey

- J. Dion, C. Commault, J. V. Woude
- Computer Science, Mathematics
- Autom.
- 1 July 2003

In this survey paper, we consider linear structured systems in state space form, where a linear system is structured when each entry of its matrices, like A,B,C and D, is either a fixed zero or a… Expand

Sparse representations of phase-type distributions

- S. Mocanu, C. Commault
- Mathematics
- 1999

A phase-type distribution is the distribution of hitting time in a finite-state Markov chain. A phase-type distribution is triangular if one can find an upper triangular markovian representation for… Expand

Disturbance Decoupling by Measurement Feedback with Stability or Pole Placement

- J. Willems, C. Commault
- Mathematics
- 1 July 1981

In this paper we solve the disturbance decoupling problem by measurement feedback and requiring stability or pole placement on the closed loop system. The problem is attacked using the geometric… Expand

Modeling and analysis of closed-loop production lines with unreliable machines and finite buffers

- Y. Frein, C. Commault, Y. Dallery
- Mathematics
- 1 July 1996

The purpose of this paper is to propose an analytical method for the performance evaluation of closed-loop production lines with unreliable machines and finite buffers. Such a system consists of a… Expand

Input addition and leader selection for the controllability of graph-based systems

- C. Commault, J. Dion
- Computer Science, Mathematics
- Autom.
- 1 November 2013

In this paper, we consider dynamical graph-based models, which are well fitted for the structural analysis of complex systems. A significant amount of work has been devoted to the controllability of… Expand

Phase-type distributions and representations: Some results and open problems for system theory

- C. Commault, S. Mocanu
- Mathematics
- 1 January 2003

In this paper we consider phase-type distributions. These distributions correspond to the random hitting time of an absorbing Markov chain. They are used for modelling various random times, in… Expand

Observer-based fault detection and isolation for structured systems

- C. Commault, J. Dion, O. Sename, R. Motyeian
- Computer Science, Mathematics
- IEEE Trans. Autom. Control.
- 1 December 2002

Fault detection and isolation (FDI) problems are here consid- ered for linear systems with faults and disturbances. We design a set of ob- server-based residuals in such a way that the transfer from… Expand

Observability recovering by additional sensor implementation in linear structured systems

- C. Commault, J.-M. Dion, D. H. Trinh
- Computer Science
- Proceedings of the 44th IEEE Conference on…
- 12 December 2005

In this paper, we consider linear structured systems which represent a large class of parameter dependent linear systems. We focus our attention on observability analysis. It turns out that the… Expand

On the reachability in any fixed time for positive continuous-time linear systems

- C. Commault, M. Alamir
- Mathematics, Computer Science
- Syst. Control. Lett.
- 1 April 2007

This paper deals with the reachability of continuous-time linear positive systems. The reachability of such systems, which we will call here the strong reachability, amounts to the possibility of… Expand

Sensor Location for Diagnosis in Linear Systems: A Structural Analysis

- C. Commault, J. Dion
- Computer Science, Mathematics
- IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control
- 12 February 2007

We consider here the fault detection and isolation (FDI) problem for linear systems. We are interested in designing a set of observer-based residuals, in such a way that the transfer from the faults… Expand
