Reason for embargo
This paper presents a sliding mode fault detection scheme for linear parameter varying (LPV) systems with uncertain or imperfectly measured scheduling parameters. In the majority of LPV systems, it is assumed that the scheduling parameters are exactly known. In reality due to noise or possibly faulty sensors, it is sometimes impossible to have accurate knowledge of the scheduling parameters and a design based on the assumption of perfect knowledge of the scheduling parameters cannot be guaranteed to work well in this situation. This paper proposes a sliding mode observer scheme to reconstruct actuator and sensor faults in a situation where the scheduling parameters are imperfectly known. The efficacy of the approach is demonstrated on simulation data taken from the nonlinear RECONFIGURE benchmark model.
