An optimum sensor selection design framework applied to an electro-magnetic suspension system

This paper presents a systematic design framework for selecting the best sensor set to control an EMS system subject to satisfying a set of complex requirements such as optimum performance, robustness and sensor fault tolerance. The design framework combines the ℋ∞ robust control design, fault tolerance concept and heuristic approaches. The efficacy of the scheme is illustrated via application to an EMS system.
