These schemes can also be employed as actuator redundancy management for overactuated uncertain linear systems. In contrast to many existing methods in the literature that assume the control input matrix (i) is not of full-rank such that it can be factorized into two matrices and (ii) it does not involve uncertainty, these schemes can be applied to systems whose control input matrix cannot be factorized and/or involve uncertainty. The so-called virtual control, in these schemes, is calculated using suboptimal H2-based static output feedback design schemes constructed to be robust against uncertainties emanating from inherent input matrix uncertainty and visibility of the control allocator to the controller. Then, using two proposed control allocation schemes (fixed and on-line), the obtained virtual control signal is redistributed among remaining (redundant or nonfaulty) set of actuators. As the proposed schemes are modular-based, they can be employed as real-time fault tolerant control schemes with no need to reconfigure the controller in the case of actuator faults or failures. The effectiveness of the proposed schemes is discussed and compared with numerical examples.
