Network Based Control and Estimation

H. Gao University of Alberta, Canada

Networked control systems (NCSs) receive more and more attention and become increasingly popular in recent years. This talk will present a new approach to solve the control and estimation problems arising from networked control systems. More specifically, the problem of Hinfinity control and Hinfinity estimation will be investigated, with the simultaneous consideration of sampling-holding behavior, network induced delay, packet dropout, and quantization. These problems will be solved via using an input-delay approach, and by employing the Lyapunov-Krasovskii approach and linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). Some illustrative examples will be provided to show the effectiveness of the proposed methods.
