Robust Inversion Based Fault Estimation for Discrete-Time LPV Systems
The article presents a state-space based Fault Diagnosis (FD) method for discrete-time, affine Linear Parameter Varying (LPV) systems. The goal of the technical note is to develop a robust and dynamic inversion based technique for systems with parameter varying representations when an additive, exogenous disturbance signal perturbs the system. After applying geometric concepts for explicit fault inversion, a robust strategy is proposed to attenuate the effect of the unknown disturbance input signal on the fault estimation error. The proposed robust observer is derived as a solution of off-line Linear Matrix Inequality (LMI) conditions. The technical note demonstrates the viability of the novel methodology through a numerical example.
