Quantized Feedback Control for Networked Control Systems Under Communication Constraints

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper investigates the feedback stabilization problem for Networked Control Systems (NCSs) with unbound process noise, where sensors and controllers are connected via noiseless digital channels carrying a finite number of bits per unit time. A sufficient condition for stabilization of NCSs, which relies on a variable-rate digital link used to transmit state measurements, is derived. A lower bound of data rates, above which there exists a quantization, coding and control scheme to guarantee both stabilization and a prescribed control performance of the unstable discrete-time plant, is presented.
