In this paper is presented a semi-active fault-tolerant control (SAFTC) as an alternative to reconfigurable or self-repairing fault-tolerant architectures with application to power systems. The final goal is to achieve stability and a minimum level of system performance following the completely loss of the feedback signals in the controller, which in this case are remote wide-area signals. The proposed controller is designed under the framework of Linear Matrix Inequalities (LMIs) to achieve pole placement. The semi-active design is compared against and ordinary or non-fault-tolerant control design to highlight that following the loss of a wide-area signal in the control, the closed loop response can lead to instability in the non-fault-tolerant case. The results are validated through nonlinear simulations results using a reduced version of the Nordic power system where the effectiveness of the proposed approach is demonstrated.
