This article investigates the cooperative fault-tolerant control problem for multiple high-speed trains (MHSTs) with actuator faults and communication delays. Based on the actor-critic neural network, a distributed sliding mode fault-tolerant controller is designed for MHSTs to solve the problem of actuator faults. To eliminate the negative effects of unknown disturbances and time delay on train control system, a distributed radial basis function neural network (RBFNN) with adaptive

By calculating the tracking error online, an actor-critic structure with RBFNN is used to estimate the switching gain of the distributed controller, which reduces the chattering phenomenon caused by sliding mode control. The global stability and ultimate bounded of all signals of the closed-loop system are proposed with strict mathematic proof. Simulations show that the proposed method has superior effectiveness and robustness compared with other fault-tolerant control methods, which ensures the safe operation of MHSTs under moving block conditions.
