Abstract

The problem of integrated design of controller and communication sequences is addressed for networked control systems with simultaneous consideration of medium access limitations and network-induced delays, packet dropouts and measurement quantization. By exploiting a Lyapunov–Krasovskii functional and by making use of novel techniques for switching delay systems, it is shown that linear time invariant systems can be stabilized with delay-dependent state feedback controllers and communication sequences satisfying appropriate delay-dependent conditions in terms of linear matrix inequalities. Illustrative examples are provided to show the usefulness and advantage of the developed results. Copyright © 2009 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
