Paper Abstract

A reliable servo system design scheme against sensor failures in the speed control loop is proposed. In the proposed reliable control system structure, in addition to the primary output sensor, redundant dissimilar sensors are used to measure different system variables which are more easily accessible and dynamically related to the desired output. In the event of output sensor failure, the measured signal from the redundant sensor can still maintain the system stability and certain performance, such as, tracking ability.
