Abstract : This paper focuses on the problem of fault estimation for a class of interconnected nonlinear systems with
time varying delays. In contrast to the common assumption imposed on the problem in most literature, here, there is
no need for the delay rate to be less than one. Both actuator and component faults are considered within the general
fault model invoked as multiplicative faults in this study. Robust adaptive observers are used to detect and estimate
simultaneously the states and the parameter faults in each subsystem. The designed observers ensure a prescribed
H∞ performance level for the fault estimation error, irrespective of the uncertainties which are assumed here to
be the unknown interconnections between the subsystems. With the aid of H∞ performance index, the common
assumption regarding the observer matching condition is no longer required. Sufficient conditions for asymptotic
stability of the observers are derived via a matrix inequality approach with the aid of Lyapunov Krasovskii function.
Finally, a simulation example is presented to show the validity and feasibility of the proposed method.
