Internal Stability of Dynamically Quantised Control for Stochastic Scalar Plants

Assaf Gurt, Girish N. Nair
2008 IFAC Proceedings Volumes  
In this paper, we remove this assumption and explicitly construct a finite-dimensional coding and control policy that yields mean square stability of all state variables, for a random initial plant state  ...  In this paper we study conditions under which an unstable stochastic scalar linear plant with unbounded noise can be internally stabilised using 'zooming'-like coding and control schemes having dynamic  ...  As a consequence, many papers have appeared recently in the literature which addressed the problem of controlling an unstable plant using quantised control schemes with limited bit rate; see Nair et al  ...

Non-coherence in estimation and control

Gireeja Ranade, Anant Sahai
2013 2013 51st Annual Allerton Conference on Communication, Control, and Computing (Allerton)  
The paper considers the estimation and control of a discretetime linear system with continuous random observation gain, i.e. through a non-coherent channel.  ...  In contrast to other results with rate-limited feedback, the paper shows that the system can be closed-loop mean-square stabilized in a certain parameter regime even though its open-loop counterpart is  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS We acknowledge support of the NSF through the grant CNS-0932410 and a GRF.  ...

Optimal estimation in networked control systems subject to random delay and packet loss

Luca Schenato
2006 Proceedings of the 45th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control  
We present two time-invariant estimator architectures and, surprisingly, we show that stability does not depend on packet delay but only on the packet loss probability.  ...  In this paper we study optimal estimation design for sampled linear systems where the sensors measurements are transmitted to the estimator site via a generic digital communication network.  ...  Scenario (D) corresponds to a DCN with no packet loss but with unbounded random packet delay.  ...

Control Capacity [article]

Gireeja Ranade, Anant Sahai
2017 arXiv   pre-print
Control capacity allows us to answer questions of stabilizability for scalar linear systems: a system with actuation uncertainty is stabilizable if and only if the control capacity is larger than the log  ...  We develop a notion of "control capacity" that gives a fundamental limit (in bits) on the rate at which a controller can dissipate the uncertainty from a system, i.e. stabilize to a known fixed point.  ...  Unlike the case with deterministic system gains, ADT models would not suffice to understand systems with random control gains, since they only capture bit shifts.  ...

Specifically, networks with finite bandwidth and packet drops and systems with finite control inputs are studied in detail.  ...  Following our first paper of stabilizing a Linear Time Invariant (LTI) system in a packet-based network, which appeared in ACC 05, this paper further studies various rate issues associated with networked  ...  Acknowledgment The authors would like to thank Michael Epstein for helping simulate the closed loop system in the previous section.  ...

Internal stability of dynamic quantised control for stochastic linear plants

2009 Automatica  
In this article, we consider partially observed, unstable linear time-invariant plants, with unbounded and possibly non-Gaussian noise, and propose a modified zooming-like scheme with finite-dimensional  ...  Existing analyses of 'zooming' quantisation schemes for bit-rate-limited control systems rely on the encoder and controller being initialised with identical internal states.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors acknowledge insightful discussions on this topic with colleagues Dr. T.

Slotted Gaussian Multiple Access Channel: Stable Throughput Region and Role of Side Information

Vaneet Aggarwal, Ashutosh Sabharwal
2008 EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking  
The first notion is the conventional Shannon capacity which relies on large coding block lengths for finite SNR, while the second uses finite code blocks with high SNR.  ...  We find that the stable throughput region coincides with the Shannon capacity region for many scenarios of side information, where side information is defined as a mix of statistical description and instantaneous  ...  A.

Stabilization using both noisy and noiseless feedback [article]

2006 arXiv   pre-print
Using the standard toy example of scalar stabilization, this paper shows how a small amount of noiseless feedback can perform a "supervisory" role and thereby boost the effectiveness of noisy feedback.  ...  When designing a distributed control system, the system designer has a choice in how to connect the different units through communication channels.  ...  Definition 2.2: A discrete time discrete memoryless channel (DMC) is a probabilistic system with an input.  ...

2015 Nature Communications  
This is in sharp contrast to the general expectation that quantum bits strongly coupled with a hot many-body system will rapidly lose coherence.  ...  However, disorder can localize an isolated many-body system, potentially allowing for a sharply defined topological phase even in a highly excited state.  ...  Acknowledgements We acknowledge illuminating discussions with D.
