In this paper, the fault detection problem for a class of state-dependent switched nonlinear systems with linear switching surface is addressed. The investigation of fault detection problem includes two parts: design sub-filters for each subsystem, and determine a proper update of estimated state. A fault detection filter is proposed incorporating the update of estimated state at switching instants and the multiple Lyapunov function approach is employed in the design process to reduce the conservativeness. It should be pointed out that the state update relation is derived based upon multiple Lyapunov functions and also on the information of switching surface. In the end, a special case in which the state space is divided into several polyhedral cells is discussed. A numerical example is given to illustrate the effectiveness of proposed results.
