On the Use of State Predictors in Networked Control Systems
Without pretending to be exhaustive, the aim of this chapter is to give an overview on the use of the state predictor in the context of time-delay systems, and more particularly for the stabilisation of networked control systems. The authors show that the stabilisation of a system through a deterministic network can be considered as the stabilisation of a time-delayed system with a delay of known dynamics. The predictor approach is proposed, along with some historical background on its application to time-delayed systems, to solve this problem. Some simulation results are also presented.
