    This paper describes the experimental identifi- cation of the parameters of the Twin Rotor MIMO System (TRMS) non-linear model using data collected from the real lab set-up. From this non-linear model, ...
  • Fault estimation and virtual sensor FTC approach for LPV systems 

    Montes de Oca, Saúl; Rotondo, Damiano; Nejjari Akhi-Elarab, Fatiha; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    In this paper, a Fault Tolerant Control (FTC) strategy using a virtual sensor for Linear Parameter Varying (LPV) systems is proposed. The main idea of this FTC method is to reconfigure the control loop such that the nominal ...
