Diagnosis of Switching Systems using Hybrid Bond Graph

Taher Mekki, Slim Triki and Anas Kamoun

Hybrid Bond Graph (HBG) is a Bond Graph-based modelling approach which provides an effective tool not only for dynamic modeling but also for fault detection and isolation (FDI) of switching systems. Bond graph (BG) has been proven useful for FDI for continuous systems. In addition, BG provides the causal relations between systems variables which allow FDI algorithms to be developed systematically from the graph. There are many methods that exploit structural relations and functional redundancy in the system model to find efficient solutions for the residual generation and residual evaluation steps in FDI of switching systems. This paper describes two different techniques, quantitative and qualitative, based on common modelling approach that employs HBG. In quantitative approach, global analytical redundancy relationships (GARRs) are derived from the HBG model with a specified causality assignment procedure. GARRs describe the system behaviour at all of its operating modes. In qualitative approach, functional redundancy can be captured by a Temporal Causal Graph (TCG), a directed graph that may include temporal information.
