About this Textbook

Fault-tolerant control aims at a gradual shutdown response in automated systems when faults occur. It satisfies the industrial demand for enhanced availability and safety, in contrast to traditional reactions to faults, which bring about sudden shutdowns and loss of availability.

The book presents effective model-based analysis and design methods for fault diagnosis and fault-tolerant control. Architectural and structural models are used to analyse the propagation of the fault through the process, to test the fault detectability and to find the redundancies in the process that can be used to ensure fault tolerance. It also introduces design methods suitable for diagnostic systems and fault-tolerant controllers for continuous processes that are described by analytical models of discrete-event systems represented by automata.

The book is suitable for engineering students, engineers in industry and researchers who wish to get an overview of the variety of approaches to process diagnosis and fault-tolerant control.

The authors have extensive teaching experience with graduate and PhD students, as well as with industrial experts. Parts of this book have been used in courses for this audience. The authors give a comprehensive introduction to the main ideas of diagnosis and fault-tolerant control and present some of their most recent research achievements obtained together with their research groups in a close cooperation with European research projects.

The third edition resulted from a major re-structuring and re-writing of the former edition, which has been used for a decade by numerous research groups. New material includes distributed diagnosis of continuous and discrete-event systems, methods for reconfigurability analysis, and extensions of the structural methods towards fault-tolerant control. The bibliographical notes at the end of all chapters have been up-dated. The chapters end with exercises to be used in lectures.

About the authors

Mogens Blanke is professor in automation and control at the Technical University of Denmark and adjunct professor at Institute of Technical Cybernetics at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. His research interests include autonomous and fault-tolerant systems, fault diagnosis and systems architecture design to obtain desired safety properties. Professor Blanke’s experiences include the development of fault-tolerant control for the Danish Ørsted satellite, for marine automation and control, for mobile robots and for diagnosis for small aircrafts. Professor Blanke is Technical Editor for Fault-Tolerant Systems for IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems and he is Associate Editor for Control Engineering Practice.

Michel Kinnaert is professor in the Department of Control Engineering and System Analysis at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (Belgium). He has held a visiting professor position at the LAGEP at the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1 and a postdoctoral position at the University of Newcastle (Australia). His research interests include fault diagnosis and fault tolerant control for linear and nonlinear systems with applications in the process industry, in mechatronics and in wind farms. Professor Kinnaert has been the chairman of the IFAC Technical Committee SAFEPROCESS.

Jan Lunze is professor of automatic control and head of the Institute of Automation and Computer Control at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (Germany). His researc

h interests include fault diagnosis and reconfigurable control of discrete-event and hybrid systems, control theory with applications in the automotive and process industries, and networked control systems, where he has been the coordinator of a priority program of the German Research Foundation. He is author of numerous research papers and of monographs and textbooks on control theory, discrete-event systems and artificial intelligence with applications to dynamical

systems.

Marcel Staroswiecki is Honorary Professor of automatic control at the Université des Sciences et Technologies de Lille (France). He is the former head of the Laboratoire d’Automatique et d’Informatique Industrielle de Lille (LAIL-CNRS) and is currently with the Laboratoire SATIE-CNRS at Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan. Professor Staroswiecki and his group have been working on fault detection, isolation and recovery algorithms since 1986. His research addresses model, signal and data-based approaches to the supervision of complex and embedded systems with emphasis on structural analysis, intelligent instruments and components, and applications in the process industry and to transportation systems.
