This paper deals with the problems of robust fault detection using Kullback discrimination information (KDI) in presence of nonlinear undermodeling. The systems to be diagnosed are assumed to contain certain unknown nonlinear elements. The fault detection is performed by applying the KDI to a linear ARMAX model with model uncertainty, in which error due to nonlinear undermodeling is described using a group of fuzzy models with adjustable parameters. The estimate of modeling error is considered in the KDI analysis and thresholding decision for robustness realization. The effectiveness of the proposed robust fault detection scheme is examined through numerical simulations.
