Summary: Persistent Disturbance Attenuation Properties for Networked Control Systems
Hai Lin and Panos J. Antsaklis
Abstract-- In this paper, both the asymptotic stability and
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 switchings. Then the NCSs'
stability and performance problems can be reduced to the
corresponding problems of such switched systems. The asymp-
totic stability problem is considered first, and a necessary
and sufficient condition is derived for the NCSs' asymptotic
stability based on robust stability techniques. Secondly, the
persistent disturbance attenuation properties are
studied, and an algorithm is proposed to calculate the l
induced gain of the NCSs. The decidability issue of the
algorithm is also discussed.
