Chapter Ten

Large-Scale Impulsive Dynamical Systems

10.1 Introduction

The complexity of modern controlled large-scale dynamical systems is further exacerbated by the use of hierarchical embedded control subsystems within the feedback control system, that is, abstract decision-making units performing logical checks that identify system mode operation and specify the continuous-variable subcontroller to be activated. As discussed in Chapter 1, such systems typically possess a multiechelon hierarchical hybrid decentralized control architecture characterized by continuous-time dynamics at the lower levels of the hierarchy and discrete-time dynamics at the higher levels of the hierarchy. The lower-level units directly interact with the dynamical ...
