Model-based approach to fault detection of the linear electromagnetic actuators is proposed and validated in the framework of the electromagnetic actuator in the bistable valve operation. The forward uncertainty propagation for the nonlinear mathematical model is performed to determine the probability of faultless operation under aleatoric and epistemic uncertainties. A basic technique is then proposed to make a decision on occurred fault.
