A particle filter based method for nonlinear system fault detection and isolation is proposed in this paper. It is applicable to quite general stochastic nonlinear dynamic systems in discrete time. The main result consists of a new particle filter algorithm, derived from the basic bootstrap particle filter, and capable of rejecting a subset of the faults possibly affecting the considered system. Fault isolation is then achieved by the evaluation of the estimated likelihoods related to the designed filters.
