In this paper we propose a novel distributed state estimator for large-scale linear systems composed by subsystems interacting through state variables. The distributed state estimator has the following features: (i) local state estimators, each dedicated to the reconstruction of the states of a subsystem, are connected through a communication network with the parent-child topology induced by subsystems coupling; (ii) the design of a local state estimator requires information on the associated… CONTINUE READING
