A new fuzzy-model-based approach to fault detection and diagnosis is proposed. The scheme uses a set of fuzzy reference models which describe faulty and fault-free operation, and a classifier based on fuzzy matching for fault diagnosis. The reference models are obtained off-line from simulation data. A fuzzy model which describes the actual behavior of the plant is identified online from normal operating data and compared to each of the reference models. A degree of similarity is evaluated every time the online fuzzy model is identified. Dempster's rule of combination is used to combine new evidence with that already collected. The method of diagnosis accounts for any ambiguity (which may result from fault-free and faulty operation, or different faults, having similar symptoms at a given operating point) by comparing the fuzzy reference models with each other. Results are presented which demonstrate the effectiveness of the scheme when it is used to detect and identify faults in the cooling coil subsystem of the air-handling unit of both simulated and experimental air-conditioning plant
