This paper addresses the problem of robust fault estimation and fault tolerant control (FTC) for Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) fuzzy systems. A fuzzy-augmented fault estimation observer (AFEO) design is proposed to achieve fault estimation of T-S models with actuator faults. Furthermore, based on the information of online fault estimation, an observer-based dynamic output feedback-fault tolerant controller (DOFFTC) is designed to compensate for the effect of faults by stabilizing the closed-loop system. Sufficient conditions for the existence of both AFEO and DOFFTC are given in terms of linear matrix inequalities. Simulation results of an inverted pendulum system are presented to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
