Multiagent Consensus Control under Network-Induced Constraints

Won Il Kim, Rong Xiong, Qiuguo Zhu, and Jun Wu

Full-text: Open access

Abstract

Mean consensus problem is studied using a class of discrete time multiagent systems in which information exchange is subjected to some network-induced constraints. These constraints include package dropout, time delay, and package disorder. Using Markov jump system method, the necessary and sufficient condition of mean square consensus is obtained and a design procedure is presented such that multiagent systems reach mean square consensus.
