Stability and persistent disturbance attenuation properties for a class of networked control systems: switched system approach
International Journal of Control
In this paper, both the asymptotic stability and l 1 persistent disturbance attenuation issues are investigated for a class of networked control systems (NCSs) under bounded uncertain access delay and packet dropout effects. The basic idea is to formulate such NCSs as discrete-time switched systems with arbitrary switching. Then the NCSs' stability and performance problems can be reduced to the corresponding problems of such switched systems. The asymptotic stability problem is considered
... is considered first, and a necessary and sufficient condition is derived for the NCSs' asymptotic stability based on robust stability techniques. Secondly, the NCSs' l 1 persistent disturbance attenuation properties are studied and an algorithm is introduced to calculate the l 1 induced gain of the NCSs. The decidability issue of the algorithm is also discussed. A network controlled integrator system is used throughout the paper for illustration.
