Actuator Fault Detection and Fault Tolerant Control of a Nonlinear System Using Sliding Mode Observer

Authors: T. Damak, R. Loukil, M. Chtourou


In this work, we use the Fault detection and isolation and the Fault tolerant control based on sliding mode observer in order to introduce the well diagnosis of a nonlinear system. The robustness of the proposed observer for the two techniques is tested through a physical example. The results in this paper show the interaction between the Fault tolerant control and the Diagnosis procedure.

Keywords: Stability, Robustness, Nonlinear System, sliding mode observer, Fault detection and isolation “FDI”, Fault tolerant control “FTC”
