Satellite Fault Detection and Isolation through Decoupling Parity Space


Article Preview

In order to detect and isolate orbiting satellite actuator faults, a decoupling parity space method was extended. The decoupling parity vector was obtained using this method by singular value decomposition. Sometimes this vector may not exist, then by singular value substitution or generalized Eigen value method was used for solving the optimal approximation. The vector can easily make satellite actuator fault detected and isolated. The simulation results showed the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
