Phthalates are suspect environmental endocrine disruptors that may affect male reproduction and development by disturbing androgen synthesis and cell-cell interactions in the seminiferous epithelium. The in vivo metabolites, monophthalates, are thought to be the active agents, and toxicant effects including testicular damage and decreased sperm motility(More)
In this technical note, an impulsive consensus algorithm is proposed for second-order continuous-time multi-agent networks with switching topology. The communication among agents occurs at sampling instants based on position only measurements. By using the property of stochastic matrices and algebraic graph theory, some sufficient conditions are obtained to(More)
In this paper, the distributed consensus problem for second-order continuous-timemulti-agent networks with sampled-data communication is investigated. Motivated by impulsive control strategy, two kinds of impulsive distributed consensus algorithm are proposed. These algorithms only utilize the sampled information and are implemented at sampled times. By(More)
To reduce information exchange requirements in smart grids, an event-triggered communication-based distributed optimization is proposed for economic dispatch. In this work, the θ-logarithmic barrier-based method is employed to reformulate the economic dispatch problem, and the consensus-based approach is considered for developing fully distributed(More)
This paper develops a distributed secondary cooperative scheme for the current-controlled PWM inverters (CC-PWMIs) based on networked multiagent systems that can guarantee the accurate power sharing among the distributed energy resource (DER) units in microgrids. With the assumption that the communication networks are local, time-varying, and with low(More)
