Abstract

This paper deals with a methodical design approach of fault-tolerant controller that gives assurance for the the stabilization and acceptable control performance of the nonlinear systems which can be described by Takagi–Sugeno (T–S) fuzzy models. Takagi–Sugeno fuzzy model gives a unique edge that allows us to apply the traditional linear system theory for the investigation and blend of nonlinear systems by linear models in a different state space region. The overall fuzzy model of the nonlinear system is obtained by fuzzy combination of the all linear models. After that, based on this linear model, we employ parallel distributed compensation for designing linear controllers for each linear model. Also this paper reports of the T–S fuzzy system with less conservative stabilization condition which gives decent performance. However, the controller synthesis for nonlinear systems described by the T–S fuzzy model is a complicated task, which can be reduced to convex problems linking with linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). Further sufficient conservative stabilization conditions are represented by a set of LMIs for the Takagi–Sugeno fuzzy control systems, which can be solved by using MATLAB software. Two-rule T–S fuzzy model is used to describe the nonlinear system and this system demonstrated with proposed fault-tolerant control scheme. The proposed fault-tolerant controller implemented and validated on three interconnected conical tank system with two constraints in terms of faults, one issed to build the actuator and sond is system component (leak) respectively. The MATLAB Simulink platform with linear fuzzy models and an LMI Toolbox was used to solve the LMIs and determine the controller gains subject to the proposed design approach. View Full-Text
