The insertion of communication networks in feedback control loops complicates analysis and synthesis of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPSs), and network-induced uncertainties may degrade system control performances. Thus, this book researches networked delay compensation and event-triggered control approaches for a series of CPSs subject to network-induced uncertainties.
The authors begin with an introduction to the concepts and challenges of CPSs, followed by an overview of networked control approaches and event-triggered control strategies in CPSs. Then, networked delay compensation and event-triggered control approaches are proposed for CPSs with network communication delay, data dropout, signal quantization and event-triggered communication. More specifically, networked delay compensation approaches are proposed for linear/nonlinear networked controlled plant with time-varying and random network communication delays and data dropouts. To reduce computational burden and network communication loads in CPSs, event-triggered control, self-triggered control, co-design of event-triggered control and quantized control techniques, and event-triggered disturbance rejection control approaches are also presented.
This book is an essential text for researchers and engineers interested in cybersecurity, networked control, and CPS. It would also prove useful for graduate students in the fields of science, engineering, and computer science.
