A Discussion on Fault Detection, Isolation, Identification and Reconfiguration in Networked Control Systems of Aerospace Vehicles 2011-36-0088

In this work, the problem of fault detection, isolation, and reconfiguration (FDIR) for Networked-Control Systems (NCS) of aerospace vehicles is discussed.
The concept of fault-tolerance is introduced from a generic structure, and a review on quantitative and qualitative methods (state estimation, parameter estimation, parity space, statistic testing, neural networks, etc.) for FDIR is then performed.
Afterwards, the use of networks as loop-closing elements is introduced, followed by a discussion on advantages (flexibility, energy demand, etc.) and challenges (networks effects on performance, closed-loop fault-effects on safety, etc.) represented thereby.
Finally, examples of applications on aerospace vehicles illustrate the importance of the discussion herein exposed.
