The advances in MIMO systems and networking technologies introduced a revolution in recent times, especially in wireless and wired multi-cast (multi-point-to-multi-point) transmission field. In this work, the distributed versions of self-tuning proportional integral plus derivative (SPID) controller and self-tuning proportional plus integral (SPI) controller are described. An explicit rate feedback mechanism is used to design a controller for regulating the source rates in wireless and wired multi-cast networks. The control parameters of the SPID and SPI controllers are determined to ensure the stability of the control loop. Simulations are carried out with wireless and wired multi-cast models, to evaluate the performance of the SPID and SPI controllers and the ensuing results show that SPID scheme yields better performance than SPI scheme; however, it requires more computing time and central processing unit (CPU) resources.
