Fault tolerance evaluation of nonlinear systems using viability theory
Conference on Control and Fault Tolerant Systems (SYSTOL)
Ghaniee Zarch, Majid
This paper presents a computational procedure based on viability theory to evaluate the fault tolerance admissibility of a given fault configuration of a nonlinear system controlled by means of a predictive control law. The admissible solution set for the control problem, including the effect of faults, is determined using viability kernel and capture basin. Finally, water heater part of pasteurization process is provided as benchmark in order to show the usefulness of viability theory for fault tolerance evaluation.
