ABSTRACT This communication deals with the problem of designing a nonlinear observer in order to achieve fault detection and localization for a wide class of nonlinear systems subjected to bounded nonlinearities. A dedicated nonlinear observer scheme (DNOS) for fault detection and identification in reconstructible systems is proposed. INTRODUCTION State observation of nonlinear dynamical systems is becoming a growing topic of investigation in the specialized literature. The reconstruction of the time behaviour of state variables remains a major problem both in control theory and process diagnosis. Researchers attention is being particularly focused on the design of adaptive observers for on-line process state estimation. There is increasing awareness that to ensure robustness in performance requires simpler and stable adaptive observer schemes. Linear systems have received considerable attention (Luenberger, 1966), (O'Reilly, 1983) leading to several stable adaptive observer systems (Kreisselm...

    ABSTRACT: This paper propose a robust nonlinear unknown input observer "this an extension of the Luenberger observer in unknown inputs" based on first order Taylor expansion. The observer is characterized by its simplicity in the mathematical development can also attack a large class of nonlinear systems without go through a canonical transformation. A systematic method for calculating the gain of the observer is presented (11). The necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of the observer are given. A numerical example is given to illustrate the attractiveness and the simplicity of the new design procedure. I. INTRODUCTION A fault tolerant system is able of maintaining stability and a degree of performance in the presence of disturbances. These systems are generally classified into two approaches: Passive Fault-Tolerant Control Systems and Active Fault-Tolerant Control Systems. In our case we will consider the Passive Fault-Tolerant Control Systems.

    ABSTRACT: The Lipschitz observer design approach provides an important framework for solving the measurement error diagnosis problem in robot manipulators. The classical observer structure is not directly applicable to the detection and identification problems. This is in part due to the restrictive observer structure, and also due to the idealized assumptions inherent in this structure that do not take into account uncertain model parameters and disturbances. The dynamic observer structure offers two important advantages in that regard: (i) The observer stability condition that ensures asymptotic convergence of the state estimates is satisfied by a family

    ABSTRACT: This paper provides some new developments in the design of robust local unknown input observers for nonlinear systems based on first order Taylor approximation. The necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of the observer are given. A numerical example is given to illustrate the attractiveness and the simplicity of the new design procedure.
