New Trends in Networked Control of Complex Dynamic Systems: Theories and Applications

Description

Networked control systems (NCSs) have been extensively studied in both academy and industry and used in many fields, such as telerobotics, smart grids, intelligent transportation systems, and even in medical, military, and aerospace applications. NCSs offer great advantages, such as low cost, high reliability, simple installation and maintenance, and reduced weight and power requirements. In the meantime, the common shortcomings of the communication networks, such as transmission delays, packets drops and disorder, and data quantization also appeared in the loops of the networked systems. During the past decade, plenty of studies have been carried out in the literature to address the network-induced problems for given dynamic systems that are relatively simple. However, more challenging mathematical problems such as network-based control of more complex dynamics including time delay, parameter variations, uncertainties, and nonlinearities are still largely open and necessitate further investigations to enable wider and more successful applications.

This special issue aims to provide a timely discussion on the trends and challenges of networked control of complex dynamics systems. Both theoretical and application-oriented papers are sought for, addressing the issues and mathematical techniques of network- based control, sensing, multiagent control of complex dynamic systems, and so forth. Potential topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:

  • Network-based control of nonlinear systems
  • Network dynamics and control
  • Network-based control of switched systems
  • Network-based control of linear parameter varying systems
  • Network-based control of uncertain systems
  • Networked estimation of complex dynamics systems
  • Networked fault detection and fault tolerant control of complex dynamics systems
  • Distributed sensor networks for complex dynamic systems
  • Cooperation control and networked multiagent systems
  • Simulation tools for networked control systems
  • Mathematical problems in industrial application and processes
