From Fault Diagnosis to Reconfigurable Control: a Unified Concept

Active fault-tolerant control is generally based on two steps: First, a diagnostic unit evaluates the measured input and output signals of a system in order to detect and identify a fault. Second, the controller is reconfigured to ensure that the closed-loop system including the faulty plant satisfies again the performance requirements. In the past, most of the authors have considered either the diagnostic step or the reconfiguration step and only a few results are available concerning the complete concept of fault-tolerant control. This talk presents a unified approach to both steps and demonstrates its results for a hexacopter experiment.

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