This paper presents a new distributed monitoring approach for nonlinear, non-Gaussian hybrid systems incorporating multiple sensors in an embedded network configuration. The estimation engine of the proposed approach is particle filter (PF) which estimates locally the mode and continuous state of hybrid system at each sensor location or node. Decision on(More)
Electromechanical valves (EMV) are a promising alternative to camshafts in internal combustion (IC) engines. This paper is mainly concerned with the control of EMVs to achieve a soft landing. Due to the nature of the process, control of the valve is normally accomplished in two phase. This paper addresses the control problem over the first phase, namely(More)
The problem of fault effects in power converters has been an important issue in past years and fault detection is a mandatory step in fault-tolerant system design.
