36th International Summer School of Automatic Control. Grenoble, France.
Positive invariance as a set-theoretic method for
fault diagnosis and fault tolerant control



The development of set-theoretic methods for the characterization of invariant sets has allowed application of the associated theoretical concepts in various domains, such as fault isolation, robust control and predictive control.

The aim of this summer school is to present in an accessible manner novel trends in fault diagnosis and fault tolerant control. As a central concept, the positive invariance of sets characterizing the nominal and the faulty behavior will be shown to present a particular interest in the last decade FDI and FTC developments.

Topics approached by this summer school cover theory of invariant sets, stability of switched systems, and methods for stabilizing dynamical systems under fault occurrence. The use of these notions for fault diagnosis, fault tolerant control design and the associated numerical tools will be presented in a gradual and pedagogical manner during this 5-day summer school.
The school is intended for early stage researchers (Master, PhD, post-doc), engineers and scientists from academia and industry. Basic knowledge in automatic control and mathematical system theory will be useful.
