A Review on Fault-Tolerant Control for Single-Link Flexible Manipulator System


Article Preview

In this paper, a review of the historical development of fault- tolerant control, some proposals for the terminology in the field of supervision, fault detection and tolerance control are presented. The directions in which the subject is going are summarised and some pointers are given as to the likely issues and where new research effort is required. The paper provides a basic literature review covering most areas of fault-tolerant control of single-link flexible manipulator system.
