In this paper, we present a design of a new fault detect model-based (FDMB) controller system. The system is aimed to detect faults quickly and reconfigure the controller accordingly. Thus, such system can perform its function correctly even in the presence of internal faults. An FDMB controller consists of two main parts, the first is fault detection and diagnosis (FDD); and the second is controller reconfiguration (CR). Systems subject to such faults are modelled as stochastic hybrid dynamic model. Each fault is deterministically represented by a mode in a discrete set of models. The FDD is used with interacting multiple-model (IMM) estimator and the CR is used with generalized predictive control (GPC) algorithm. Simulations for the proposed controller are illustrated and analysed.
