In this paper, the problem of identification for passive robust fault detection when parametric modeling uncertainty is considered. In particular, a zonotope is used to bound the model parametric uncertainty. Two identification methods are introduced following, respectively, the worst-case and set-membership approaches. Then, the underlying hypothesis are(More)
In this paper, a set-membership parity space approach for linear uncertain dynamic systems is proposed. First, a set of parity relations derived from the parity space approach is obtained by means of a transformation derived from the system characteristic polynomial. As a result of this transformation, parity relations can be expressed in regressor form. On(More)
— Irrigation canals are open-flow water hydraulic systems, whose objective is mainly to convey water from its source down to its final users. They are large distributed systems characterized by non-linearity and dynamic behavior that depends on the operating point. Moreover, in canals with multiple reaches dynamic behavior is highly affected by the coupling(More)
In this paper, a new approach to design gain scheduled robust linear parameter varying (LPV) PID controllers with pole placement constraints (through LMI regions) is proposed for LPV systems with second order structure and time-varying delay. The controller structure includes a Smith predictor, real time estimated parameters that schedule the controller(More)
SUMMARY In this paper, robust fault detection based on adaptive threshold generation of a non-linear system described by means of a linear parameter-varying (LPV) model is addressed. Adaptive threshold is generated using an interval LPV observer that generates a band of predicted outputs taking into account the parameter uncertainties bounded using(More)
In this paper, an adaptive and predictive control architecture is proposed to improve the management of inland navigation networks in a global change context. This architecture aims at ensuring the seaworthiness conditions of inland navigation networks, and to improve the efficiency of the water resource management. It is based on supervision and prognosis(More)
—Inland navigation networks offer an alternative to land transport with economic and environmental benefits, and direct access to urban and industrial centers. Promoting the navigation transport requires the modernization of the network management, in particular the control of navigation levels and the improvement of the network safety. To reach these aims,(More)
