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)
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)
— This paper deals with the problem of set-membership identification and fault detection using a Bayesian framework. The paper presents how the set-membership model estimation problem can be reformulated from a Bayesian viewpoint in order to, firstly, determine the feasible parameter set in the identification stage and, secondly, check the consistency(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)
— 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, the problem of fault diagnosis of a wind farm is addressed using interval nonlinear parameter varying (NLPV) parity equations. Fault detection is based on the use of parity equations assuming unknown but bounded description of the noise and modeling errors. The fault detection test is based on checking the consistency between the measurements(More)
