Fault-Tolerant Control of Nondeterministic Input/Output Automata
This book presents novel methods of fault-tolerant control theory in a discrete-event system framework. Nondeterministic input/output automata are used to model nominal and faulty technological systems. The main contributions are the following:

  • Control design method for discrete-event systems
  • Fault modeling technique for actuator, sensor and system internal faults and failures
  • Off-line and on-line control reconfiguration based on trajectory re-planning and input/output adaptation.

Two small size running examples are used to explain the developed methods. Experiments on a manufacturing cell demonstrate the application of these methods in a realistic environment. The state of the art is provided on methods for modeling, supervisory control and fault-tolerant control of discrete-event systems.

Yannick Salomon Nke received the Diploma in Electrical Engineering and Information Sciences from the Ruhr-Universität Bochum in 2008. From 2008 to 2013 he was a scientific co-worker at the Institute of Automation and Computer Control, where he obtained his PhD. His research was focused on control design, diagnosis and control reconfiguration of discrete-event systems.
