In this paper, a fault tolerant control (FTC) system based on data driven fault detection (FDI) is presented. The behaviour of the system with proactive and reactive FTC strategies is studied in the presence of faults in an online product quality analyser with a simulated dearomatisation process operated under model predictive control (MPC). The performance of the system is validated onsite at the Neste Oil Oyj Naantali refinery. It is shown, that the inherent accommodation properties and model information in the studied MPC provide means to realise the proposed types of FTC strategies as confirmed both by simulation and the real process results. It is also shown that similar results are achieved within a simulated and the real process environments.
