The application of a new fault-tolerant control methodology to the benchmark proposed in Zamanabadi and Blanke (Control Engineering Practice 7(2) (1999) is considered. The benchmark regards the model of a propulsion system for a marine vehicle developed by the Control Engineering Department of Aalborg University. After a brief description of the system, a fault analysis is carried out leading to a set of possible faults and remedial actions. Then the fault detection and identification method, and the reconfiguration algorithm are described. Simulations on the model illustrate the performance of the fault tolerant system for some selected fault scenarios. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
