Abstract: Stochastic Distribution Control (SDC) systems are a group of systems where the outputs considered are the measured Probability Density Functions (PDFs) of the system output whilst subjected to a normal crisp input. The purpose of the control algorithm design of such systems is to choose a control input such that the PDF of the system output can follow a prespecified PDF as close as possible. Using the rational square-root B-spline model to represent the dynamics between the output PDF and the input, in this paper a non-linear adaptive observer-based fault diagnosis algorithm is proposed to diagnose the fault in the dynamic part of such systems. Using the estimation to the unknown fault, a fault tolerant control via a controller reconfiguration is proposed, where it has been shown that a good output PDF tracking can still be realised when fault occurs in the system. A simulated example is given to illustrate the use of the proposed algorithm.
