The seriesAdvancesinIndustrialControl aims to report and encourage te- nologytransfer in controlengineering. The rapid development of controlte- nology has an impact on all areas of the control discipline. New theory, new controllers, actuators, sensors, new industrial processes, computer methods, new applications, new philosophies. . . , new challenges. Much of this devel- ment work resides in industrial reports, feasibility study papers, and the - ports of advanced collaborative projects. The series o?ers an opportunity for researchers to present an extended exposition of such new work in all aspects of industrial control for wider and rapid dissemination. Control system design and technology continues to develop in many d- ferent directions. One theme that the Advances in Industrial Control series is following is the application of nonlinear control design methods, and the series has some interesting new commissions in progress. However, another theme of interest is how to endow the industrial controller with the ability to overcome faults and process degradation. Fault detection and isolation is a broad ?eld with a research literature spanning several decades. This topic deals with three questions: * How is the presence of a fault detected? * What is the cause of the fault? * Where is it located? However, there has been less focus on the question of how to use the control system to accommodate and overcome the performance deterioration caused by the identi?ed sensor or actuator fault.

From the reviews:

"An introduction to model-based fault detection and isolation (FDI) and fault tolerant control (FTC). ... The book can easily be read and understood and should be particularly useful for graduate students and practicing control engineers." (Adrian-Mihail Stoica, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2011 i)

"Engineers and researchers interested in designing fault-tolerant control systems for application to real plants will find this book of interest. After introducing model-based fault diagnosis and fault-tolerant control methods, sensor and actuator fault-tolerant control design is discussed for systems with various types of nonlinearities. The design of fault-tolerant control systems is described in detail using three applications, namely, a winding machine, a hydraulic three-tank system, and an active suspension system." (IEEE Control Systems Magazine, Vol. 30, August, 2010)

"The present monograph is one of very few books in this area that considers practical aspects of fault-tolerant control ... . the authors have successfully presented some of the most important concepts and procedures in fault-tolerant control system design and analysis. They have done this with elegance of mathematics, as well as in-depth physical understanding of the limitations of handicapped actuators and sensors." (Romeo Negrea, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1215, 2011)
