Distributed and Event-based Control, September 2-4, 2009

Speakers: Anders Rantzer (LTH) and Karl Henrik Johansson (KTH)

Abstract: How can control synthesis for a complex distributed system be done in a systematic way? Can a global objective for the total system be split into individual objectives for subsystems? What information transfer is most important for control performance? These are some of the main issues in this course, which combines ideas for decentralized optimization and control from the 1960-70s with recent work on networked control systems.
