This monograph introduces a class of networked control systems (NCS) called model-based networked control systems (MB-NCS) and presents various architectures and control strategies designed to improve the performance of NCS. The overall performance of NCS considers the appropriate use of network resources, particularly network bandwidth, in conjunction with the desired response of the system being controlled.
The book begins with a detailed description of the basic MB-NCS architecture that provides stability conditions in terms of state feedback updates . It also covers typical problems in NCS such as network delays, network scheduling, and data quantization, as well as more general control problems such as output feedback control, nonlinear systems stabilization, and tracking control.
Key features and topics include:
Time-triggered and event-triggered feedback updates
Stabilization of uncertain systems subject to time delays, quantization, and extended absence of feedback
Optimal control analysis and design of model-based networked systems
Parameter identification and adaptive stabilization of systems controlled over networks
The MB-NCS approach to decentralized control of distributed systems
Model-Based Control of Networked Systems will appeal to researchers, practitioners, and graduate students interested in the control of networked systems, distributed systems, and systems with limited feedback.
