Modelling and optimal controller design of networked control systems with multiple delays. (English) Zbl 1050.93038

The authors approach the problem of modeling and control of network control systems containing sensors, actuators and controllers distributed and interconnected by a common communication network. The modeling algorithm takes into consideration multiple inputs and multiple outputs as well as distributed communication delay. The inputs to the plant are piecewise constant and the stability analysis is based on discrete-time models. The proposed model is used as a basis for optimal controller design. Several simulation studies are presented at the end of the paper.
