Network synthesis for dynamical system stabilization


Conference Paper

We present our recent results in the area of distributed control over wireless networks. In our previous work, we introduced the concept of a Wireless Control Network (WCN), where the network acts as a decentralized structured controller. In this case the network is not used purely as a communication medium (as in traditional control paradigms), but instead as a fully distributed computational substrate. We showed that the dynamics of the plant dictate the types of network topologies that can be used to stabilize the system. Finally, we describe how to obtain a stabilizing configuration for the WCN if the topological conditions are satisfied. © 2011 IEEE.
