报告题目:Event-Triggered Control with Applicationto Multi-Agent Systems



报告人:Prof.Gang Feng (City University of Hong Kong) IEEE Fellow

报告内容In this talkevent-triggered control will be first overviewed. The motivation and majorevent-triggering mechanisms will be discussed. The challenging issue onexclusion of Zeno behavior will be highlighted. Then event-triggered controlwill be considered for heterogeneous multi-agent systems. A distributed even-triggeredcontrol algorithm will be presented for output consensus of suchmulti-agent systems.It is shownthat the output consensus problem can be solved by the proposed event-triggeredcontrol algorithms if a necessary and sufficient condition is satisfied. Then aself-triggered control scheme is also developed, where continuous monitoring ofmeasurement errors can be avoided. The feasibility of both proposed control schemesis discussed by excluding Zeno behavior. A numerical example is given toillustrate the effectiveness of the proposed control schemes.
