Robust Fault Monitoring of Networked Control Systems



A robust fault-tolerant control system approach is proposed to control a nonlinear process using a platform for remote real-time control over the Internet. A fault tolerant control strategy based on a robust model-based fault diagnosis approach is addressed. The design objectives and the networked control system's uncertainties are formulated in terms of H∞ specifications and the problem is solved using the structured singular value (μ). A module for monitoring is included where contingency methods are taken into account whenever a control action sent by the remote controller is not received in an allowable time. This approach has been applied to the remote control of a nonlinear reconfigurable laboratory system, the Three-tank benchmark plant in the case.
