Abstract : This paper investigates the problem of fuzzy adaptive finite-time fault tolerant control (FTC) for a class
of multi-input and multi-output (MIMO) nonlinear systems with actuator failure. In control design, the fuzzy
logic systems (FLSs) are adopted to identify the unknown nonlinear functions and a state observer is constructed
to estimate the unmeasurable states. By combining dynamic surface control (DSC) technique with backstepping
design, a novel finite-time fuzzy adaptive FTC strategy is proposed based on fault-tolerant control technique to
overcomes the “explosion of complexity” problem. The presented control method demonstrates that all signals of
the closed-loop system are semi-global practical finite-time stability (SGPFS), and the tracking errors converge to a
small neighborhood of zero in a finite time. Finally, a numerical example is provided to illustrate the effectiveness
of the presented control method.
