Abstract : "This study investigates a new fault-tolerant control method for uncertain nonlinear systems with multiple intermittent faults and time-varying delays. The considered intermittent faults appear in sensors and actuators simultaneously. A Markov chain is used to describe the random occurrence and disappearance of intermittent faults. The uncertain nonlinear system with intermittent faults is augmented as a Markovian jump system. By using H-infinity control theory and linear matrix inequality (LMI), we design fault tolerant controllers to make augmented Markovian jump system work steadily. Several sufficient conditions for stochastic stability with given H-infinity performance index and the existence of output-feedback controllers are derived. The effectiveness of the proposed fault-tolerant method is validated by a continuously stirred tank reactor (CSTR)."

Keyword : Fault tolerant control, H∞ control, intermittent faults, Markov model, time-varying delays.
