Abstract



Framework and Method for Model Based Diagnosis with Application to an Automotive Engine


A general framework and a method for model based diagnosis are suggested. In the framework, faults and modeling of faults are formally described. Then the method is used to construct a diagnosis system based on a structure of hypothesis tests. Using these principles, it is possible to diagnose a large variety of different types of faults. The framework and the method are applied to the design of a diagnosis system for an automotive engine. This application clearly shows the strength of these principles because several different types of sensor faults and leakage need to be diagnosed. The resulting diagnosis system is demonstrated using experiments on a real automotive engine.
