Abstract

The chapters of this book compile together a summary of research topics and application studies given by leading international experts in the field of fault diagnosis for dynamic systems. The book will be a useful reference text for newcomers to the field of fault diagnosis as well as for those with considerable knowledge of the subject. This text focuses on a wide range of methods for detecting, isolating and identifying changes or faults (fault diagnosis) in dynamical systems and controlled processes, based upon the use of quantitative and/or qualitative models and rule-based information. Since our first book (Patton, Frank & Clark, 1989) there have been many important developments in this subject both in theory and applications. The title of this new text “Issues of Fault Diagnosis for Dynamic Systems” has been chosen to reflect the wide scope of fault diagnosis methods, following the period since the first book was published.
