Design and Analysis of an Integral Sliding Mode Fault-Tolerant Control Scheme
A novel scheme for fault-tolerant control is proposed in this paper, in which integral sliding mode ideas are incorporated with control allocation to cope with the total failure of certain actuators, under the assumption that redundancy is available in the system. The proposed scheme uses the effectiveness level of the actuators to redistribute the control signals to healthy actuators without reconfiguring the controller. The effectiveness of the proposed scheme against faults or failures is tested in simulation based on a large transport aircraft model.
