2015Seron MM, De Doná JA, 'Robust fault estimation and compensation for LPV systems under actuator and sensor faults', Automatica, 52 294-301 (2015)

We propose a fault tolerant control scheme that compensates for actuator and sensor faults in linear parameter varying (LPV) systems by adjusting controller and observer gains based on estimates of the fault magnitude. The scheme consists of a plant in closed loop with an observer-based feedback tracking controller, which is adapted to the fault situation diagnosed by a fault detection and isolation (FDI) algorithm. Assuming the presence of unknown but bounded process and measurement disturbances, invariant sets are derived for the relevant system variables, and these sets are used to obtain error bounds in the fault estimate. Using these bounds, we provide conditions that ensure correct FDI and robust stability of the compensated closed-loop system even under errors in the fault magnitude estimation.

2015Osella EN, Haimovich H, Seron MM, 'Integration of invariant-set-based FDI with varying sampling rate virtual actuator and controller', International Journal of Adaptive Control and Signal Processing, (2015)

We present a new output feedback fault-tolerant control strategy for continuous-time linear systems with bounded disturbances. The strategy combines a digital nominal controller under controller-driven (varying) sampling with virtual actuator (VA)-based controller reconfiguration to compensate for abrupt actuator faults and invariant-set-based fault detection and isolation. Two independent objectives are considered: (a) closed-loop stability with setpoint tracking and (b) controller reconfiguration under faults. Our main contribution is to extend an existing fault detection and isolation and VA-based controller reconfiguration strategy to systems under controller-driven sampling in such a way that if objective (a) is possible under controller-driven sampling (without VA) and objective (b) is possible under uniform sampling (without controller-driven sampling), then closed-loop stability and setpoint tracking will be preserved under both healthy and faulty operations for any possible sampling rate evolution that may be selected by the controller.

2015Seron MM, De Doná JA, 'On invariant sets and closed-loop boundedness of Lure-type nonlinear systems by LPV-embedding', International Journal of Robust and Nonlinear Control, (2015)

We address the problem of achieving trajectory boundedness and computing ultimate bounds and invariant sets for Lure-type nonlinear systems with a sector-bounded nonlinearity. Our first contribution is to compare two systematic methods to compute invariant sets for Lure systems. In the first method, a linear-like bound is considered for the nonlinearity, and this bound is used to compute an invariant set by regarding the nonlinear system as a linear system with a nonlinear perturbation. In the second method, the sector-bounded nonlinearity is treated as a time-varying parameterised linear function with bounded parameter variations, and then invariant sets are computed by embedding the nonlinear system into a convex polytopic linear parameter varying (LPV) system. We show that under some conditions on the system matrices, these approaches give identical invariant sets, the LPV-embedding method being less conservative in the general case. The second contribution of the paper is to characterise a class of Lure systems, for which an appropriately designed linear state feedback achieves bounded trajectories of the closed-loop nonlinear system and allows for the computation of an invariant set via a simple, closed-form expression. The third contribution is to show that, for disturbances that are 'aligned' with the control input, arbitrarily small ultimate bounds on the system states can be achieved by assigning the eigenvalues of the linear part of the system with 'large enough' negative real part. We illustrate the results via examples of a pendulum system, a Josephson junction circuit and the well-known Chua circuit.

In this paper, we present an invariant-set-based method for actuator and sensor fault detection and isolation in Lure systems. The Lure plant is controlled by an observer-based feedback tracking controller, designed for the nominal (fault-free) system. Suitable residual signals are constructed from measurable system outputs and estimates associated with the nominal observer. Faults are diagnosed by online contrasting the residual signal trajectories against sets of values that the residuals are shown to attain under healthy or faulty operation. These values are obtained via set-invariance analysis of the system closed-loop trajectories.

2014Haimovich H, Seron MM, 'Bounds and invariant sets for a class of discrete-time switching systems with perturbations', International Journal of Control, 87 371-383 (2014) [C1]

We present a novel method to compute componentwise ultimate bounds and invariant regions for a class of switching discrete-time linear systems with perturbation bounds that may depend nonlinearly on a delayed state. The method has the important advantage that it allows each component of the perturbation vector to have an independent bound and that the bounds and sets obtained are also given componentwise. This componentwise method does not employ a standard norm for bounding either the perturbation or state vectors, and thus may avoid conservativeness due to different perturbation or state vector components having substantially different bounds. We also establish the relationship between the class of switching linear systems to which the proposed method can be applied and those that admit a common quadratic Lyapunov function. We illustrate the application of our method via numerical examples, including the fault tolerance analysis of the feedback control of a winding machine. © 2013 © 2013 Taylor & Francis.

2014Kong H, Goodwin GC, Seron MM, 'A cost-effective sparse communication strategy for networked linear control systems: An SVD-based approach', International Journal of Robust and Nonlinear Control, (2014)

In networked control, there is often an incentive to communicate only what is absolutely necessary to achieve the desired performance goals. This is true to both the downlink (between a control base station and actuators) and the uplink (between the sensors and base station). Here, we present a strategy aimed at this problem based on a singular value decomposition of the Hessian of the quadratic performance index generally considered in Model Predictive Control. The singular vectors are employed to generate an orthonormal basis function expansion of the unconstrained solution to the finite horizon optimal control problem. These are preloaded into each actuator and each sensor. On the downlink, the actuators are informed, in real-time, about which basis functions they should use. On the uplink, after a 'burn in period', the sensors need only communicate when their response departs from that pre-calculated for the given basis functions. We show that this strategy facilitates communication in both the downlink and uplink in a cost-effective fashion. We also show that the strategy can be modified so that input constraints are satisfied. We illustrate the proposed results by applying them to a simulation of the cross direction control of a paper machine. Potential extensions and other applications of the proposed strategy are also discussed. © 2014 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

2013Haimovich H, Seron MM, 'Bounds and invariant sets for a class of switching systems with delayed-state-dependent perturbations', Automatica, 49 748-754 (2013) [C1]

We present a novel method to compute componentwise transient bounds, componentwise ultimate bounds, and invariant regions for a class of switching continuous-time linear systems with perturbation bounds that may depend nonlinearly on a delayed state. The main advantage of the method is its componentwise nature, i.e. the fact that it allows each component of the perturbation vector to have an independent bound and that the bounds and sets obtained are also given componentwise. This componentwise method does not employ a norm for bounding either the perturbation or state vectors, avoids the need for scaling the different state vector components in order to obtain useful results, and may also reduce conservativeness in some cases. The present paper builds upon and extends to switching systems with delayed-state-dependent perturbations previous results by the authors. In this sense, the contribution is three-fold: the derivation of the aforementioned extension; the elucidation of the precise relationship between the class of switching linear systems to which the proposed method can be applied and those that admit a common quadratic Lyapunov function (a question that was left open in our previous work); and the derivation of a technique to compute a common quadratic Lyapunov function for switching linear systems with perturbations bounded componentwise by affine functions of the absolute value of the state vector components. In this latter case, we also show how our componentwise method can be combined with standard techniques in order to derive bounds possibly tighter than those corresponding to either method applied individually. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

In spite of its easy implementation, ability to handle constraints and nonlinearities, etc.; model predictive control (MPC) does have drawbacks including tuning difficulties. In this paper, we propose a refinement to the basic MPC strategy by incorporating a tuning parameter such that one can move smoothly from an existing controller to a new MPC strategy. Each change of this tuning parameter leads to a new stabilising control law, therefore, allowing one to gradually move from an existing control law to a new and better one. For the infinite horizon case without constraints and for the general case with state and input constraints, stability results are established. We also examine the practical applicability of the proposed approach by employing it in the nominal prediction model of the tube-based output feedback robust MPC method. The merits of the proposed method are illustrated by examples. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

2013Seron MM, De Doná JA, Richter JH, 'Integrated sensor and actuator fault-tolerant control', International Journal of Control, 86 689-708 (2013) [C1]

We propose a fault-tolerant control scheme that deals with sensor and actuator faults through the use of a virtual actuator (VA) and a bank of virtual sensors (VSs). A novel feature of the scheme is that the VSs implicitly integrate both fault detection and isolation (FDI) and - in conjunction with the VA - controller reconfiguration tasks. The VA and the bank of VSs operate in closed-loop with an observer-based tracking controller designed for a nominal (fault free) model of the plant. A switching rule that reconfigures the VA and engages the suitable VS from the bank is based on sets defined for measurable residual signals constructed directly from the VS signals. Our method handles abrupt actuator and sensor faults of arbitrary magnitude including complete outage. The overall scheme is shown to guarantee closed-loop boundedness and setpoint tracking under all considered fault situations. Enhancements of the scheme to deal with errors in the fault detection and isolation are also proposed. Applications of the scheme to a winding machine and an interconnected tank system are presented. © 2013 Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

SUMMARY In this paper, we present a robust actuator fault-tolerant control strategy for constrained linear systems in the presence of bounded state and input disturbances. The scheme is based on a bank of state estimators that match different fault situations that can occur in the system. A fault detection and isolation unit verifies that suitable residual variables lie inside pre-computed sets and selects the estimate that matches the current plant behaviour. A bank of robustly stabilizing tube-based model predictive control laws is designed, each associated to a fault scenario, and the appropriate controller is selected among them by using the information provided by the fault detection and isolation module. By means of 'tubes' of trajectories, we ensure robust closed-loop exponential stability of the constrained system and good performance in the fault-free case and under the occurrence of abrupt actuator faults, including actuator outage and loss of effectiveness by an unknown amount. © 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

In this paper, a novel robust sensor fault tolerant control strategy for systems with linear parameter varying (LPV) uncertainty model description is proposed. The strategy combines a robust fault detection and identification (FDI) unit based on an invariant-set approach with controller reconfiguration based on the use of a virtual sensor. The robust FDI unit employs a bank of observers that can detect faulty and healthy situations based on the separation of relevant sets, whose computation takes into account system disturbances and model uncertainty. The closed-loop system is reconfigured by means of a virtual sensor which is adapted to the fault situation detected by the FDI unit. The FDI and virtual sensor modules are designed using polytopic LPV techniques and bilinear matrix inequalities. The resulting robust fault tolerant control scheme is guaranteed to preserve boundedness of the closed-loop system trajectories under a wide range of sensor fault scenarios. The performance of the proposed scheme is illustrated by a simulation example. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Induction Heating Furnaces are used extensively in industry. The basic principle is that induced eddy currents are used to heat a ferromagnetic material as it passes through a series of coils. Because of the importance of such systems, there has been on-going interest in their design and operation. Past work includes model development from physical principles and optimal design of operational practices. However, previous work has invariably been based on open-loop strategies. Our work is aimed at the design of a closed-loop control strategy incorporating feedback from the available measurements. This paper reports initial work including model development and calibration together with preliminary control system design. Proposed future work includes full scale industrial implementation.© 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

2015Seron MM, Zhuo XW, De Dona JA, Martinez JJ, 'Fault tolerant multisensor switching control strategy', 2007 European Control Conference, ECC 2007 (2015)

In this paper we investigate the fault tolerance properties of a multisensor switching strategy previously proposed by the authors. We show that closed-loop stability of the resulting switching scheme is guaranteed in the presence of faulty sensors if a set of conditions on the system parameters (such as bounds on the sensor noises, maximum and minimum values of the reference signal, etc.) is satisfied. This constitutes an important step in enhancing and broadening the applicability of the proposed multisensor scheme since it provides guaranteed properties such as fault tolerance and robust closed-loop stability under sensor failure. The results are applied to the problem of automotive longitudinal control.

In this contribution we propose a fault tolerant control (FTC) scheme to compensate for sensor faults in multisensor fusion-based control of linear parameter varying systems. The scheme consists of a closedloop system with an estimator-based feedback tracking controller that combines healthy sensor-estimator pairings via a fusion algorithm. Faulty sensors are detected and discarded based on a set separation criterion, which considers both model uncertainty and system disturbances. We ensure the preservation of closed-loop system boundedness for a wide range of sensor fault situations and for the whole domain of plant model uncertainty. To illustrate the performance of the proposed FTC strategy, a flexible joint robotic arm example is presented.

2015McCloy RJ, De Doná JA, Seron MM, 'On the estimation of convergence times to invariant sets in convex polytopic uncertain systems', Lecture Notes in Computer Science (including subseries Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence and Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics) (2015)

In this paper, we first provide a mathematical description and proof for the robust stability of systems with convex polytopic uncertainty through the construction of attractive invariant sets. Then, we present the problem of estimating the convergence time to arbitrarily tight over-approximations of an invariant set, from both a known initial condition and for initial conditions belonging to a convex polytopic set. We then propose various analytical and numerical methods for computing the aforementioned convergence time. Finally, a number of numerical examples, including a flexible link robotic manipulator, are given to illustrate the results.

Conf. on Integrated Modeling and Analysis in Applied Control and Automation, IMAACA 2007, Held at the IMSM 2007 (2007)

We present a new control design method which guarantees any prespecified componentwise ultimate bound on the state of multiple-input systems with matched perturbations. The method is based on eigenstructure assignment by state feedback and utilises a componentwise bound computation procedure recently proposed by the authors. This procedure exploits both the system and perturbation structures by performing componentwise analysis, thus avoiding the need for bounds on the norm of the perturbation. We present examples which illustrate the simplicity and generality of the method.

Advanced design aims to achieve the best possible performance subject to operational constraints. Such questions can be formulated as optimization problems. The advantages of using an explicit optimization formulation include clear articulation of performance trade-offs and the provision of a clear basis for quantitative comparison of different strategies. In this paper we will briefly review aspects of modern optimization. We will also show how these tools can be deployed in scheduling, estimation and control. We will illustrate the ideas by examples drawn from the mining, mineral and metal processing field. Copyright © 2007 IFAC.

This paper investigates the structure present in constrained linear state estimation problems formulated as a quadratic optimization program subject to linear inequality constraints. Polyhedral constraints on the system disturbance, the measurement noise, and the initial state are considered. The result interprets the measurement data and prior estimate as parameters and the parameter space is partitioned into multiple regions. Within each region the state estimate can be calculated as a piece-wise affine function of the measurement data and prior estimate. The parameterized regions and coefficients of the piece-wise affine function can be precomputed offline allowing a simplified approach in implementing a moving horizon estimation scheme.
