— Motivated by applications in an area of control of networked systems, we consider a fault detection problem for a class of linear systems with random delays. We demonstrate that an observer can be developed to detect the fault occurrence even though the delay value is unknown and is modeled by a random Markov process with a finite number of states.
A local error method based on an analytical scheme previously developed for the scalar optical fiber channel is applied to the second-order symmetrized split-step Fourier simulation of polarization multiplexed signal propagation through dispersion compensated optical fiber links. It is found that the global simulation accuracy for the vector propagation can… (More)
This study is motivated by a need to effectively determine the difference between a system fault and normal system operation under parametric uncertainty using eigenstructure analysis. This involves computational robustness of eigen-vectors in linear state space systems dependent upon uncertain parameters. The work involves the development of practical… (More)
In recent years an increasing emphasis is being placed on the inclusion of multidisciplinary programs or in courses having multidisciplinary content. Including this content can be challenging especially among the various engineering disciplines. This is exacerbated by the challenges associated with making this type of course content accessible to a wide… (More)
