    generate a residual signal, and based upon the properties of the generated residual signal, potential fault conditions are identified and useful information is extracted (Ding 2008). The basic concept of a typical model-based fault detection approach is illustrated in Fig. As indicated in Fig., there are two main stages in this approach, the first of which generates the residual which is then passed to the residual evaluation stage. Throughout the fault-free operation, the magnitude of the residual signal
