This paper deals with the design of a residual generator for fault detection and isolation in the dynamic closed-loop systems based on the balance of energy which "enters" and "leaves" plants. The main contribution of this paper consists in developing a suitable fault detection and isolation technique to detect faults in single-input single-output(More)
The prospective work reported in this paper explores a new approach to enhance the performance of an active fault tolerant control system. The proposed technique is based on a modified recovery/trajectory control system in which a reconfigurable reference input is considered when performance degradation occurs in the system due to faults in actuator(More)
In this paper, an active Fault Tolerant Control (FTC) strategy is developed to systems described by multiple linear models to prevent the system deterioration by the synthesis of adapted controllers. First, a Polytopic Unknown Input Observer is synthesized for providing actuator fault estimation. The actuator fault estimation is used in a FTC scheme which(More)
A flatness-based flight trajectory planning/replanning strategy is proposed for a quadrotor unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). In the nominal situation (fault-free case), the objective is to drive the system from an initial position to a final one without hitting the actuator constraints while minimizing the total time of the mission or minimizing the total(More)
This work presents a general framework taking into account system and components reliability in a Model Predictive Control (MPC) algorithm. The objective is to deal from an availability point of view with a closed-loop system combining a deterministic part related to the system dynamics and a stochastic part related to the system reliability. The main(More)
In this paper, a sensor model-based fault diagnosis method for a particular class of nonlinear systems is developed. A polynomial matrices representation is considered for modeling the dynamic behavior of a class of nonlinear systems. According to nonlinear representation via a polytopic transformation, the nonlinear faulty system can be considered as a(More)
This paper investigates the application of a fault diagnosis and accommodation method to a real system composed of three tanks. The performance of a closed-loop system can be altered by the occurrence of faults which can, in some circumstances, cause serious damage on the system. The research goal is to prevent the system deterioration by developing a(More)
This paper deals with a Fault Tolerant Control (FTC) strategy for polytopic Linear Parameter Varying (LPV) systems. The main contribution consists in the design of a Static Output Feedback (SOF) dedicated to such systems in the presence of multiple actuator faults/failures. The controllers are synthesized through Linear Matrix Inequalities (LMIs) in both(More)
