This paper proposes a reconfigurable controller design method for multivariable systems, which is capable of dealing with order-change problems that may occur in an after-fault system. A new method is proposed to recover the nominal closed-loop performance after a fault occurrence in the system. This approach uses the eigenstructure assignment. Unlike the previously developed approaches, the new method can be implemented in the case when the fault leads to order change of the after-fault model. Also, it can be used to solve the problems in which the set of after-fault open-loop and closed-loop eigenvalues have common elements, especially when the system becomes uncontrollable or unobservable due to the fault. The method guarantees the stability of the reconfigured closed-loop system in the presence of output feedback. Finally, simulation results are provided to show the effectiveness of the proposed method for an aircraft model.
