This paper describes the development and the evaluation of a robust sliding mode observer fault detection scheme applied to an aircraft benchmark problem as part of the ADDSAFE project. The ADDSAFE benchmark problem which is considered in this paper is the yaw rate sensor fault scenario. A robust sliding mode sensor fault reconstruction scheme based on an LPV model is presented, where the fault reconstruction signal is obtained from the so-called equivalent output error injection signal associated with the observer. The development process includes implementing the design using AIRBUS׳s the so-called SAO library which allows the automatic generation of flight certifiable code which can be implemented on the actual flight control computer. The proposed scheme has been subjected to various tests and evaluations on the Functional Engineering Simulator conducted by the industrial partners associated with the ADDSAFE project. These were designed to cover a wide range of the flight envelope, specific challenging manoeuvres and realistic fault types. The detection and isolation logic together with a statistical assessment of the FDD schemes are also presented. Simulation results from various levels of FDD developments (from tuning, testing and industrial evaluation) show consistently good results and fast detection times.
