PRIETO MORENO, Alberto et al. Design based on fault diagnosis and hybrid systems applied to a ventricular defibrillator device. Ingeniare. Rev. chil. ing. [online]. 2012, vol.20, n.1, pp. 48-65. ISSN 0718-3305. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-33052012000100006.
This article presents a proposal of procedure to incorporate the fault diagnosis from the design phase of ventricular defibrillation equipment. This solves a set of constraints that are currently present in the design of electronic systems. The proposed procedure uses the concept of diagnosis-based design, the technique of composition of hybrid automata modeling and diagnosis based on expert knowledge. Finally the system is designed with the fault diagnostic system incorporated. The procedure can be extended to other types of systems.
Keywords : Fault diagnosis system; diagnosis-based design; hybrid automata; timed automata; automata composition; decision tree.
