The development of a fieldbus based electro-hydraulic converter with functions of non-sensor fault self-diagnostic, fault prediction, fault-tolerant and fault self-removing is described. Non-sensor fault self-diagnostic and fault prediction were implemented through the detection of an oscillation current. The current was selected as the criterion of jam fault. Redundancy construction was adopted to realize the fault-tolerant function. Also, the switching principle of the redundancy construction was discussed. A concept of "electrical hammer" was presented to resolve the jam fault on-line automatically. A CEBus based powerline communication network was developed to fulfill the communication demands of field devices which are normally interconnected by "low voltage" wiring. The effectiveness of the proposed converter was demonstrated through simulations and experiments. It was concluded that the converter has a promising future in engineering applications, especially in turbine governing systems that suffer from jam fault.
