This paper explores the fault-tolerant control problem for uncertain impulsive singular linear time-variant (LTV) systems in the presence of bounded-power or L disturbances. Here, a saturation avoidance mechanism is employed to prevent faulty actuators from overloading. Also, the conflict between attenuating the effect of L disturbances and enlarging the domain of attraction is tackled by proposing a nonconstant state feedback controller. In addition, the proposed method is capable of tolerating time-varying faults. The suggested method is implemented on a mechanical viscoelastic model of cortical bone with impulsive and time-varying nature to evaluate its competency.
