The wide adoption of wireless devices in the Internet of Things requires controllers that are able to operate with limited resources, such as battery life. Operating these devices robustly in an uncertain environment, while managing available resources, increases the difficultly of controller design. This letter proposes a robust self-triggered model predictive control approach to optimize a control objective while managing resource consumption. In particular, a novel zero-order-hold aperiodic…

Scheduling Delays and Curtailment for Household Appliances With Deterministic Load Profiles Using MPC
Smart home appliances can time-shift and curtail their power demand to assist demand side management or allow operation with limited power, as in an off-grid application. This letter proposes a


Resource-Aware Asynchronous Multi-Agent Coordination via Self-Triggered MPC
An asynchronous resource-aware multi-agent model predictive control to cooperatively coordinate agents to conduct a common task, whose resource concern is handled by a self-triggered control scheme.
An introduction to event-triggered and self-triggered control
An introduction to event- and self-triggered control systems where sensing and actuation is performed when needed and how these control strategies can be implemented using existing wireless communication technology is shown.
Robust self-triggered model predictive control for constrained discrete-time LTI systems based on homothetic tubes
In this paper, a robust self-triggered model predictive control scheme for discrete-time linear time-invariant systems subject to input and state constraints and additive disturbances is presented and homothetic sets are used in the prediction of the future evolution of the system.

Predictive Control for Linear and Hybrid Systems
Predictive Control for Linear and Hybrid Systems is an ideal reference for graduate, postgraduate and advanced control practitioners interested in theory and/or implementation aspects of predictive control.
Quadratic boundedness of nominally linear systems
A non-linear/uncertain system is quadratically bounded if all its solutions are bounded and this is guaranteed by a quadratic Lyapunov function. We obtain easily checkable conditions which are
Joint Energy Management for Distributed Energy Harvesting Systems
This work proposes to perform the energy management of multiple distributed energy harvesting nodes jointly and thus, optimize the distributed system's performance as opposed to the performance of each energy harvesting node individually.
Robust Optimization for MPC
This chapter aims to give a concise overview of numerical methods and algorithms for implementing robust model predictive control (MPC) and reviews and compares generic approaches based on min-max dynamic programming and scenario-trees as well as Tube MPC based on set-propagation methods.
