This book has described recent research in the area of sliding mode theory applied to fault detection and fault tolerant control problems, conducted over the previous decade. The results which have been described are all based on rigorous underpinning theory, but with an underlying requirement that they be practical, and hence implementable in real time. One of the purposes of this book is to try to demonstrate the practicality of sliding mode methods for fault detection and fault tolerant control in real engineering problems. The preceding chapters—particularly the ones describing the implementation of the controllers on the SIMONA research simulator—have demonstrated that sliding mode methods have great potential as health monitoring and fault tolerant control strategies in industrial engineering systems.
