  • This thesis develops an online parameter and state estimation scheme for a linear parameter varying (LPV) system that utilizes an iterative moving window technique. In the proposed scheme, an online algorithm, based on the input/output measurement, is implemented to approximate the real system with the best match LPV model. The varying parameters in the LPV model can be estimated by solving a quadratic programming optimization problem, and state variable values can be calculated with an adaptive state observer. As an application, the wind turbine system is formulated as an LPV model and applied by the proposed scheme. In addition, the ranges of state and uncertainty are obtained in an online fault detection (FD) scheme, based on parity space models using a technique similar to the iterative moving estimation window. A two-level adaptive threshold for FD is designed to decrease the miss alarm rate based on the estimated ranges.
