Topic：Event-Triggered Control with Application to Multi-Agent Systems
Speaker：Prof. Gang Feng (City University of Hong Kong), IEEE Fellow
Venue：E706, New Main Building
In this talk event-triggered control will be first overviewed. The motivation and major event-triggering mechanisms will be discussed. The challenging issue on exclusion of Zeno behavior will be highlighted. Then event-triggered control will be considered for heterogeneous multi-agent systems. A distributed even-triggered control algorithm will be presented for output consensus of such multi-agent systems. It is shown that the output consensus problem can be solved by the proposed event-triggered control algorithms if a necessary and sufficient condition is satisfied. Then a self-triggered control scheme is also developed, where continuous monitoring of measurement errors can be avoided. The feasibility of both proposed control schemes is discussed by excluding Zeno behavior. A numerical example is given to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed control schemes.
