Electro-Hydraulic Systems (EHS) are commonly used in many industrial applications. Prediction and timely fault detection of EHS can significantly reduce their maintenance cost, and eliminate the need for redundant actuators. Current practice to detect faults in the actuators can miss failures with combination of multiple sources. Missed faults can result in sudden, unforeseen failures. We propose a fault detection technique based on Multiple Regressor Adaptive Observers (MRAO). The results were evaluated using a two-stage servo-valve model. The proposed MRAO can be used for on-line fault detection. Therefore, we propose a health monitoring approach based on the trend of the identified parameters of the system. Using the history of identified parameters, normal tear and wear of the actuator can be distinguished from the component failures to more accurately estimate the remaining useful life of the actuator.
