Network-based robust \(H_{\infty}\) control of systems with uncertainty. (English) Zbl 1091.93007

Summary: This paper is concerned with the design of robust \(H_{\infty}\) controllers for uncertain networked control systems (NCSs) with the effects of both the network-induced delay and data dropout taken into consideration. A new analysis method for \(H_{\infty}\) performance of NCSs is provided by introducing some slack matrix variables and employing the information of the lower bound of the network-induced delay. The designed \(H_{\infty}\) controller is of memoryless type, which can be obtained by solving a set of linear matrix inequalities. Numerical examples and simulation results are given finally to illustrate the effectiveness of the method.
