Stability of Discrete-Time Plants using Model-Based Control with Intermittent Feedback
 

Summary: Stability of Discrete-Time Plants using Model-Based Control
with Intermittent Feedback
Tomas Estrada Panos J. Antsaklis
Abstract
In this paper we study the stability of discrete-time
plants in a networked control setting, employing an ap-
proach known as Model-Based Networked Control Sys-
tems (MB-NCS) with Intermittent Feedback. Model-
Based Networked Control Systems use an explicit model
of the plant in order to reduce the network traffic while
attempting to prevent excessive performance degrada-
tion, while Intermittent Feedback consists of the loop
remaining closed for some fixed interval, then open for
another interval. We provide a full description of the
output, as well as a necessary and sufficient condition
for stability of the system. We also extend our results to
the case where the full state of the plant is not known,
so that we resort to a state observer. Finally, we in-
vestigate the situation where the update times are time-
varying, first addressing the case where they have upper
