    In recent years, the study of networked control systems (NCSs) has gradually become an active research area due to the advantages of using networked media in many aspects such as the ease of maintenance and installation, the large flexibility and the low cost. It is well known that the devices in networks are mutually connected via communication cables that are of limited capacity. Therefore, some network-induced phenomena have inevitably emerged in the areas of signal processing and control engineering. These phenomena include, but are not limited to, network-induced communication delays, missing data, signal quantization, saturations, and channel fading. It is of great importance to understand how these phenomena influence the closed-loop stability and performance properties

    Event-Based H∞ filter design for a class of nonlinear time-varying systems with fading channels and multiplicative noises

    In this paper, a general event-triggered framework is developed to deal with the finite-horizon H∞ filtering problem for discrete time-varying systems with fading channels, randomly occurring nonlinearities and multiplicative noises. An event indicator variable is constructed and the corresponding event-triggered scheme is proposed. Such a scheme is based on the relative error with respect to the measurement signal in order to determine whether the measurement output should be transmitted to the filter or not. The fading channels are described by modified stochastic Rice fading models. Some uncorrelated random variables are introduced, respectively, to govern the phenomena of state-multiplicative noises, randomly occurring nonlinearities as well as fading measurements. The purpose of the addressed problem is to design a set of time-varying filter such that the influence from the exogenous disturbances onto the filtering errors is attenuated at the given level quantified by a H∞ norm in the mean-square sense. By utilizing stochastic analysis techniques, sufficient conditions are established to ensure that the dynamic system under consideration satisfies the H∞ filtering performance constraint, and then a recursive linear matrix inequality (RLMI) approach is employed to design the desired filter gains. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the developed filter design scheme

    Finite-horizon H∞ control for discrete time-varying systems with randomly occurring nonlinearities and fading measurements

    This technical note deals with the H∞ control problem for a class of discrete time-varying nonlinear systems with both randomly occurring nonlinearities and fading measurements over a finite-horizon. The system measurements are transmitted through fading channels described by a modified stochastic Rice fading model. The purpose of the addressed problem is to design a set of time-varying controllers such that, in the presence of channel fading and randomly occurring nonlinearities, the H∞ performance is guaranteed over a given finite-horizon. The model transformation technique is first employed to simplify the addressed problem, and then the stochastic analysis in combination with the completing squares method are carried out to obtain necessary and sufficient conditions of an auxiliary index which is closely related to the finite-horizon H∞ performance. Moreover, the time-varying controller parameters are characterized via solving coupled backward recursive Riccati difference equations (RDEs). A simulation example is utilized to illustrate the usefulness of the proposed controller design scheme

    Finite-horizon estimation of randomly occurring faults for a class of nonlinear time-varying systems

    This paper is concerned with the finite-horizon estimation problem of randomly occurring faults for a class of nonlinear systems whose parameters are all time-varying. The faults are assumed to occur in a random way governed by two sets of Bernoulli distributed white sequences. The stochastic nonlinearities entering the system are described by statistical means that can cover several classes of well-studied nonlinearities. The aim of the problem is to estimate the random faults, over a finite horizon, such that the influence from the exogenous disturbances onto the estimation errors is attenuated at the given level quantified by an H∞-norm in the mean square sense. By using the completing squares method and stochastic analysis techniques, necessary and sufficient conditions are established for the existence of the desired finite-horizon H∞ fault estimator whose parameters are then obtained by solving coupled backward recursive Riccati difference equations (RDEs). A simulation example is utilized to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed fault estimation method
