Distributed Control for Identical Dynamically Coupled Systems: A Decomposition Approach

  title={Distributed Control for Identical Dynamically Coupled Systems: A Decomposition Approach},
  author={Paolo Massioni and Michel Verhaegen},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control},
We consider the problem of designing distributed controllers for a class of systems which can be obtained from the interconnection of a number of identical subsystems. If the state space matrices of these systems satisfy a certain structural property, then it is possible to derive a procedure for designing a distributed controller which has the same interconnection pattern as the plant. This procedure is basically a multiobjective optimization under linear matrix inequality constraints, with…
