    This paper studies stabilization of uncertain systems via data-rate-limited and lossy communication channels. We consider linear systems where the parameters are given as intervals and the exact values are unavailable. Communication between the plant and the controller is restricted in the sense that transmitted signals should be represented in finite bits and may be randomly lost. While most of t...

    Optimal decentralized controller design is notoriously difficult, but recent research has identified large subclasses of such problems that may be convexified and, thus, are amenable to solution via efficient numerical methods. One recently discovered sufficient condition for convexity is quadratic invariance (QI). Despite the simple algebraic characterization of QI, which relates the plant and co... View full abstract»

  • Networked Control Systems: A Polynomial Receding Horizon Approach

    A receding horizon control strategy for nonlinear networked control systems described by polynomial models subject to input, state, and communication constraints is presented. By resorting to a set-theoretic framework, sequences of precomputed inner approximations of the one-step controllable sets are online exploited to compute the commands to be applied to the plant in a receding horizon fashion...

    The fast development of the self-organizing networks (SON) technology in mobile networks renders critical the problem of coordinating SON functionalities operating simultaneously. SON functionalities can be viewed as control loops that may need to be coordinated to guarantee conflict-free operation, to enforce stability of the network, and to achieve performance gain. This paper proposes a distrib... View full abstract»

  • Consensus and Coherence in Fractal Networks

    We consider first- and second-order consensus algorithms in networks with stochastic disturbances. We quantify the deviation from consensus using the notion of network coherence, which can be expressed as an $H_{2}$ norm of the stochastic system. We use the setting of fractal networks to investigate the question of whether a purely topological measure, such as the fractal dimension, can capture th... View full abstract»

  • Pattern Synchronization of Nonlinear Heterogeneous Multiagent Networks With Jointly Connected Topologies

    Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):349 - 359
    Cited by:  Papers (10)

    In this paper, a decentralized control algorithm is proposed for a group of heterogeneous agents with nonlinear dynamics such that it achieves synchronization in diverse collective motion patterns. With the aid of a group of deliberately designed linear homogeneous reference models, the synchronization problem is converted into a class of regulation problem. The regulation problem is hence solved ... View full abstract»

  • Observability in Connected Strongly Regular Graphs and Distance Regular Graphs

    This paper concerns the study of observability in consensus networks modeled with strongly regular graphs or distance regular graphs. We first give a Kalman-like simple algebraic criterion for observability in distance regular graphs. This criterion consists in evaluating the rank of a matrix built with the components of the Bose-Mesner algebra associated with the considered graph. Then, we define... View full abstract»

  • Detection of Faults and Attacks Including False Data Injection Attack in Smart Grid Using Kalman Filter

    By exploiting the communication infrastructure among the sensors, actuators, and control systems, attackers may compromise the security of smart-grid systems, with techniques such as denial-of-service (DoS) attack, random attack, and data-injection attack. In this paper, we present a mathematical model of the system to study these pitfalls and propose a robust security framework for the smart grid... View full abstract»

  • Quantized Subgradient Algorithm and Data-Rate Analysis for Distributed Optimization

    In this paper, we consider quantized distributed optimization problems with limited communication capacity and time-varying communication topology. A distributed quantized subgradient algorithm is presented with quantized information exchange between agents. Based on a proposed encoder-decoder scheme and a zooming-in technique, the optimal solution can be obtained without any quantization errors. ... View full abstract»
