Abstract

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 instance, CO2 emissions). An algorithm is presented for achieving this goal. A simplified application of the algorithm to emissions control for a fleet of Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) is given.
