The main contributions can be summarized as follows: (1) a novel system structure and formulation is proposed for the active FTC problem in a cloud environment, where the fault diagnosis is implemented by the computational resources in the cloud; (2) a residual matching approach is carried out to implement the fault isolation and the fault estimation can be accomplished by least-squares filter recursively; (3) the problem is solved with packet dropout and actuator fault for the cloud-based DC motor system and simulation result shows the effectiveness of the proposed technique.
