  • Sliding-mode observers are used to construct unknown input estimators. Then, these unknown input estimators are combined with sensor fault estimation schemes into one architecture that employs two sliding-mode observers for simultaneously estimating the plant’s actuator faults (part of the unknown input) and detecting sensor faults. Closed form expressions are presented for the estimates of unknown inputs and sensor faults. A benchmark example of a controlled inverted pendulum system from the literature is utilized in the simulation study. The study shows that the observers analyzed in this paper generate good estimates of the unknown input and sensor faults signals in noisymore » environments for nonlinear plants.« less
  • In the carbonate reservoir, the gas was trapped in the cavity of the formation. First of all, to identify the cavity as the distribution of the cavity or porous zone will be done by reflection strength and instantaneous frequency from the seismic attribute analysis. After the zone has been identified, the existing gas and the value of porosity can be estimated using AVO analysis and AVO inversion technique. This idea was applied to the carbonate reservoir within the Parigi Formation in the Northwest Java Basin (Indonesia) by Santoso et al. The result shows a clear zone of high reflection strengthmore » and low instantaneous frequency in the carbonate build up. The porosity estimated by AVO inversion gives a value of the porosity about 38% and the Poisson`s ratio around 0.22-0.26. This paper is continuation of Santoso et al. study. It is done by the delineation of the porosity which can be displayed by the acoustic impedance section as a result of seismic inversion process. The delineation of the reservoir characters to the horizontal direction as previous study gives around a similar value as shown by acoustic impedance value. When these results were compared to the borehole data in the location, they are very close. Therefore this idea has given a satisfactory result in estimating porosity from seismic data and delineating the carbonate reservoir away from the borehole.« less
  • The efficient on-line thermal unknowns estimation using the Kalman filter and recursive least square with forgetting weighting algorithm is presented. The efficiency is dominated by the best choice of the forgetting factor under different scales of covariance of process and measurement noise. In this paper the roots mean square error is mainly used as the performance index to discuss the role and effect of forgetting factor. Simultaneously, the performances of the proposed algorithm in time domain and in frequency domain of the estimation are also discussed. In summary, an rigorously efficient robust forgetting factor zone, which provides a excellent trackingmore » time-lag and noise filtered estimation result, is introduced. This zone is applicable to any type of time varied thermal unknown functions in the Inverse Heat Conduction Problem (IHCP) and suitable for the hardware loop realization under the global uncertainties. In addition, the thermal diffusion lag, is also discussed and compensated in this paper. The superior results are verified through one dimensional IHCP simulation.« less
