This paper provides a tutorial introduction to reconfi-gurable control and surveys recent advances on this topic. Control reconfiguration is an important method of fault-tolerant control that uses the results of a fault diagnosis component to restructure the control loop and to adapt the controller to the faulty plant. This paper describes recent approaches(More)
A reconfigurable control approach for continuous-time piecewise affine (PWA) systems subject to actuator and sensor faults is presented. The approach extends the concept of virtual actuators and virtual sensors from linear to PWA systems on the basis of the fault-hiding principle that provides the underlying conceptual idea: the fault is hidden from the(More)
—This paper presents our multi-year experience in the development of a Functional Modeling Compiler (FMC), a new model-based design tool for the development of multidisciplinary automotive cyber-physical systems. We show how system-level simulation models suitable for design-space exploration of complex architectures can be synthesized from functional(More)
This paper reports our experience in the development of a novel concept design support tool for cyber-physical systems (CPS). We show that the various disciplines in CPS design can be brought together to enhance the communication and requirements negotiation among engineers and organizations, to enable multidisciplinary simulations to evaluate the(More)
This paper presents a bottom-up approach for the extraction of system functions from simulation component libraries; this step is desirable and necessary for the integration of system-level 1D simulation tools with product lifecycle management systems (PLM). The presented approach performs a port, structural (e.g., equational/algorithmic), parameter, and(More)
