There is an increasing demand for dynamic systems to become safer, more reliable and more economical in operation. This requirement extends beyond the normally accepted safety-critical systems e.g., nuclear reactors, aircraft and many chemical processes, to systems such as autonomous vehicles and some process control systems where the system availability is vital. The field of fault diagnosis for dynamic systems (including fault detection and isolation) has become an important topic of research. Many applications of qualitative and quantitative modelling, statistical processing and neural networks are now being planned and developed in complex engineering systems. Issues of Fault Diagnosis for Dynamic Systems has been prepared by experts in fault detection and isolation (FDI) and fault diagnosis with wide ranging experience.Subjects featured include: - Real plant application studies; - Non-linear observer methods; - Robust approaches to FDI; - The use of parity equations; - Statistical process monitoring; - Qualitative modelling for diagnosis; - Parameter estimation approaches to FDI; - Fault diagnosis for descriptor systems; - FDI in inertial navigation; - Stuctured approaches to FDI; - Change detection methods; - Bio-medical studies. Researchers and industrial experts will appreciate the combination of practical issues and mathematical theory with many examples. Control engineers will profit from the application studies.
