MICHAIL, K., ZOLOTAS, A.C. and GOODALL, R.M., 2009. EMS systems: optimised sensor configurations for control and sensor fault tolerance. International Symposium on Speed-up, Safety and Service Technology for Railway and Maglev Systems (STECH’09), Niigata JAPAN, 6-19th June.
The paper describes a sensor optimisation systematic
framework approach and a Fault Tolerant control scheme
for sensor failures applied to an EMS maglev system.
The aim is to find the minimum number of sensors that
can be used in order to optimise the performance, reduce
complexity and offer sensor fault tolerance. The concept
is verified via simulations with the non-linear model of
an EMS system.
