Abstract : "This paper deals with a robust sliding mode descriptor observer for estimation of states and reconstruction
of actuator and sensor faults simultaneously in the presence of uncertainties, measurement noise and output
disturbances. In the proposed method, the well-known H∞ concepts are used for minimizing the effects of the
uncertainty in the estimation of the states and reconstruction of the faults by using the Linear Matrix Inequalities
(LMIs). By considering the sensor fault and output disturbance as auxiliary state vectors, an augmented system
is established. As a case study, an industrial boiler is considered and the proposed robust observer illustrates the
robust performance on estimation of its states and reconstruction of its faults in the presence of uncertainties."
