One of the key goals of intelligent control systems is to achieve high performance with increased reliability, greater availability, and automation of maintenance procedures. Continuous demand for greater productivity has led to more challenging operating conditions for many modern industrial systems. Such conditions increase the possibility of system faults, which are characterized by critical and unpredictable changes in system dynamics.


In this presentation, we present a unified methodology for detecting, isolating and accommodating both abrupt and incipient faults in a class of nonlinear dynamic systems. Various adaptive approximation techniques and learning algorithms will be presented and illustrated, and directions for future research will be discussed.
