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)
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 the integration of reliability evaluation in reconfigurability analysis of a fault-tolerant control system is considered. The aim of this work is to contribute to reliable fault-tolerant control design. The admissibility of control recon-figurability is analyzed with respect to reliability requirements. This analysis shows the relationship(More)
A new approach to manage actuator redundancy in the presence of faults is proposed based on reliability indicators and a reference governor. The aim is to preserve the health of the actuators and the availability of the system both in the nominal behavior and in the presence of actuator faults. The use of reference governor control allocation is a solution(More)
— The active fault-tolerant control approach relies heavily on the occurred faults. In order to improve the safety of the reconfigurable system, a methodology to incorporate actuator health in the fault-tolerant control design is proposed for a tracking problem. Indeed, information about actuator health degradation due to the applied control is considered(More)
In this paper, an active Fault Tolerant Control (FTC) strategy is developed to nonlinear systems described by multiple linear models to prevent the system deterioration by the synthesis of adapted controllers. By considering that Fault Detection, Isolation (FDI) and estimation is realized, the synthesis of an appropriate combination of predesigned gains is(More)
