This paper reports a new result on the fault detection of dynamical systems by employing only first-order functional observers. Indeed, we show that fault detection can be achieved by utilizing first-order functional observers. The advantages for having such simple structured observers are obvious from the economical and practical points of view as significant cost saving can be achieved. We derive existence conditions and an algorithm for the generation of residual signals to detect faults using first-order functional observers. Two numerical examples are given to illustrate the proposed fault detection scheme. In one of the examples, a two-area interconnected power system with reheat thermal turbines is considered where only a first-order functional observer is designed to detect faults in the power system. © 2013 IEEE.
