Distributed Control for Large-Scale NCSs

Abstract

Recent years have witnessed an increasing attention on the study of distributed coordination for multiple agents due to its broad applications in many areas including formation control, distributed sensor network, flocking, distributed computation, and synchronization of coupled chaotic oscillators. A fundamental requirement on this topic is that all the agents should reach an agreement (consensus) using the shared data through local communications, which is determined by an underlying network topology. Toward this objective, a key step is to design a network-based control protocol such that as time goes on, all the agents asymptotically agree on some variable of interest in an ...
