Results in Cooperative Control and Implicit Consensus
Knorn, Florian and Corless, Martin and Shorten, Robert N. (2011) Results in Cooperative Control and Implicit Consensus. International Journal of Control, 84 (3). pp. 476-495. ISSN 0020-7179
This paper is concerned with a class of decentralised control problems that arise in contemporary applications where agents cooperate to control and regulate a global quantity, are limited in the manner in which they communicate with each other, and are required to reach consensus on some implicit variable (for example, CO2 emissions). Three algorithms are presented for achieving this goal. The convergence of these algorithms are proven, and their efficacy is demonstrated in simulations.
