Another remark is that rotor rotation frequency is fault indicator for both mechanical misalignment and unbalance.
However, these frequencies do not confuse the fault diagnosis by using ESA, because the analysis is comparative and the frequencies do not necessarily match fault pattern frequencies.
Metrics need to be established to represent fault impacts, and discovered faults need to be evaluated to estimate their energy, cost, and comfort implications.
In theoretical FDD research, the tasks of fault detection and diagnostics are often separated to ensure the modularity and expandability of the system (de Kleer and Williams 1987; Isermann 1995; Martinez-Guerra and Mata-Machuca 2014).
But when the fault is non-recoverable, reconfiguration will do nothing since part of the FPGA is physically damaged and will cause errors again, in this case relocation of the circuit's logic is the only solution.
Some of the researches used simple algorithm by considering the first fault as a transient fault, and the second consecutive to be permanent.
Geologists estimate the recurrence interval of earthquakesas well as theamountof displacements an active fault may generate during earthquakes.

The aim of this paper is to study the time-varying fault detection, isolation, and estimation problem of stochastic dynamic systems with multiple asynchronous sensors.
