An LMI approach to Mixed H∞/H- fault detection observer design for linear fractional-order systems

Mohammad Azimi, Heydar Toossian Shandiz


This study deals with the problem of robust fault detection for linear time-invariant fractional-order systems (FOSs) assumed to be affected by sensor, actuator and process faults as well as disturbances. The observer-based method was employed to solve the problem, where the detector is an observer. The problem was transformed into the mixed H_∞/H_- robust optimization problem to make the system disturbance-resistant on one hand and fault-sensitive on the other hand. Then, sufficient conditions were obtained to solve the problem in the Linear matrix inequality (LMI) mode. Finally, the effectiveness and superiority of the method were demonstrated by simulating the solutions on a single-input multi-output thermal testing bench.
