This paper presents important extensions to model-based diagnosis of continuous dynamic systems by using Fuzzy Qualitative Simulation as the system model. Although diagnosing dynamic systems using Artificial Intelligence techniques is just at its beginning, FuSim makes such a task feasible, since it can generate a qualitative description of the dynamic behaviour of a system with related temporal durations, allowing the synchronous detection of discrepancies between the observations and predictions of the system. The work presented here was inspired by Mimic, the pioneering approach to diagnosing continuous dynamic systems by the use of qualitative simulation.
