A possible way to increase the reliability and availability of a system is to apply an Active Fault Tolerant Control (AFTC) algorithm. This thesis aims to use this algorithm in a multiengine propulsive cluster with sensor and actuator faults. First, a Health Monitoring System (HMS) will be developed to monitor the entire propulsive cluster. The HMS will use model-based fault diagnosis techniques. Then, in case of actuator faults, the cluster will be reconfigured to minimize its effects. The reconfiguration can be made by using control allocation or modifying the control law of the engine. A simulation model of the entire cluster is under development. The model simulates the whole system, including the propellant feeding system, engines, and mechanical system. It will be used to study the effect of different faults on the system and compare different reconfiguration strategies.
