Abstract

الوصف This work investigates a fuzzy direct adaptive fuzzy fault-tolerant Control (FFTC) for a class of perturbed single input single output (SISO) uncertain nonlinear systems. The designed controller consists of two sub-controllers. One is an adaptive unit, and the other is a robust unit, whereas the adaptive unit is devoted to getting rid of the dynamic uncertainties along with the actuator faults, while the second one is developed to deal with fuzzy approximation errors and exogenous disturbances. It is proved that the proposed approach ensures a good tracking performance against faults occurring, uncertainties, and exogenous disturbances, and the stability study of the closed-loop is proved regarding the Lyapunov direct method in order to prove that all signals remain bounded. Simulation results are presented to illustrate the accuracy of the proposed technique.

COVID-19 is a very dangerous respiratory disease that can spread quickly through the air. Doctors, nurses, and medical personnel need protective clothing and are very careful in treating COVID-19 patients to avoid getting infected with the COVID-19 virus. Hence, a medical telepresence robot, which resembles a humanoid robot, is necessary to treat COVID-19 patients. The proposed self-balancing COVID-19 medical telepresence robot is a medical robot that handles COVID-19 patients, which resembles a stand-alone humanoid soccer robot with two wheels that can maneuver freely in hospital hallways. The proposed robot design has some control problems; it requires steady body positioning and is subjected to disturbance. A control method that functions to find the stability value such that the system response can reach the set-point is required to control the robot's stability and repel disturbances; this is known as disturbance rejection control. This study aimed to control the robot using a combination of Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) control and a Kalman filter. Mathematical equations were required to obtain a model of the robot's characteristics. The state-space model was derived from the self-balancing robot's mathematical equation. Since a PID control technique was used to keep the robot balanced, this state-space model was converted into a transfer function model. The second Ziegler-Nichols's rule oscillation method was used to tune the PID parameters. The values of the amplifier constants obtained were Kp=31.002, Ki=5.167, and Kd=125.992128. The robot was designed to be able to maintain its balance for more than one hour by using constant tuning, even when an external disturbance is applied to it.

The inverted pendulum system is highly popular in control system applications and has the characteristics of unstable, nonlinear, and fast dynamics. A nonlinear controller is needed to control a system with these characteristics. In addition, there are disturbances and parameter uncertainty issues to be solved in the inverted pendulum system. Therefore, this study uses a nonlinear controller, which is the backstepping sliding mode control. The controller is robust to parameter uncertainty and disturbances so that it is suitable for controlling an inverted pendulum system. Based on testing with step and sine reference signals without interference, the controller can stabilize the system well and has a fast response. In testing with disturbances and mass uncertainty, the backstepping sliding mode controller is robust against these changes and able to make the system reach the reference value. Compared with sliding mode control, backstepping sliding mode control has a better and more robust response to disturbances and parameter uncertainty.

This paper presents an adaptive fuzzy fault-tolerant tracking control for a class of unknown multi-variable nonlinear systems, with external disturbances, unknown control sign, and actuator faults. By employing fuzzy logic systems, the unknown nonlinear dynamics and the state-dependent actuator faults are approximated, and by utilizing a Nussbaum-type function, the issue of unknown control sign is solved. The proposed control scheme is based on two forms, an adaptive fuzzy controller along with a robust controller that is equipped with a Nussbaum-type gain function, which guarantees stability with the boundedness of all signals involved in the closed-loop system. To prove the accuracy, and the effectiveness of the proposed control scheme, a simulation example on two-inverted pendulums system is carried out.

This paper deals with the problem of faulty and perturbed class of nonlinear systems. The universal approximator system is used to cope with the nonlinearities and the actuator faults. Two controllers are proposed, the first is an adaptive controller and the second is a robust controller. The proposed scheme allows to deal with the external disturbances theoretically instead of approximation. The stability is proved using Lyapunov theory. Simulation example on an inverted pendulums is carried out to show the prompt and the accuracy of the proposed strategy.

This paper presents an online controlling and fault diagnosis scheme for hybrid (electric and pneumatic) actuators with nonlinear uncertain discrete time system. The proposed approach features a modular observer based on model predictive control (FDMPC). The fault detection design can detect faulty states and parametric faults based on predictions states of hybrid system that using to guarantees no false-positives alarms due to systems uncertainties and occurred faults. On the other hand, based on the fault conditions that have occurred, the proposed scheme is able to reconstruct the time varying faults directly without using an isolation and identification task, by calculating approximating the unknown parameter values based on necessary conditions. The simulation results of a hybrid actuators of an industrial arm shown the effectiveness of the proposed approach.

In this paper, an active fuzzy fault tolerant tracking control (AFFTTC) scheme is developed for a class of multi-input multi-output (MIMO) unknown nonlinear systems in the presence of unknown actuator faults, sensor failures and external disturbance. The developed control scheme deals with four kinds of faults for both sensors and actuators. The bias, drift, and loss of accuracy additive faults are considered along with the loss of effectiveness multiplicative fault. A fuzzy adaptive controller based on back-stepping design is developed to deal with actuator failures and unknown system dynamics. However, an additional robust control term is added to deal with sensor faults, approximation errors, and external disturbances. Lyapunov theory is used to prove the stability of the closed loop system. Numerical simulations on a quadrotor are presented to show the effectiveness of the proposed approach.

This paper addresses the design of a new adaptive attitude tracking control strategy for a flexible spacecraft system in the presence of external disturbances and uncertain failures of redundant reaction wheels. The proposed strategy does not depend on the exact model of the spacecraft and can compensate for a more general class of time-varying and state-dependent failures that reaction wheels may undergo in a practical environment. The controller is built around an integrated adaptive approximation based design that accommodates for both system and actuator failure uncertainties. The controller parameter update law is derived to minimise the control prediction error. Unlike most existing actuator failure compensation techniques which are limited to special cases of actuator failures, the proposed controller can compensate for a larger set of actuator failures with time-varying patterns. Closed-loop system stability and tracking performance are proved using Lyapunov stability theory. Parameter jumps caused by abrupt failures are also taken into consideration during the stability proof. A simulation study is performed on a spacecraft with flexible solar array actuated by redundant reaction wheels. The results show the effectiveness and feasibility of the proposed actuator failure compensation controller compared to other controllers from the literature.

This paper investigates the attitude stabilization problem of spacecraft subject to external disturbances and actuator saturation. A novel attitude control scheme is technically proposed by incorporating the Nussbaum gain technique into backstepping design. The key idea behind this is to introduce a special Nussbaum-type function in order to compensate for the time-varying nonlinear terms arising from input saturation. By exploiting the dynamic surface control (DSC) technique, the problem of “explosion of terms” inherent in traditional backstepping designs is effectively eliminated and the computational burden is significantly reduced. Additionally, based on the selected Nussbaum-type function, a constructive analysis methodology is presented, which plays an important role in analyzing the stability properties of the closed-loop system. It is then proved that the proposed control scheme can guarantee the boundedness of all closed-loop signals. Furthermore, the unwinding phenomenon is given a simple and effective remedy by resorting to suitable choices of the attitude error variable and the virtual control law. Finally, simulation experiments are carried out to assess the effe-ctiveness and demonstrate the advantages of the proposed control scheme.

This paper proposes a new design methodology of direct adaptive fuzzy controllers for a class of MIMO nonlinear dynamical systems with unknown nonlinearities. The unknown nonlinearities are approximated by fuzzy system with a set of fuzzy IF-THEN rules whose parameters are adjusted on-line according to derived adaptive control laws. The fuzzy adaptive laws ensure stability, convergence of the controlled output, and 'boundedness' of the adaptation parameters. The goal is to control the output of a class of nonlinear systems (encountered mainly in robotics) in order to track some given trajectories. Theoretical results are illustrated through a simulation example. They show the effectiveness of the proposed control scheme.
