H-Infinite Controller Design of Singular Networked Control Systems


This paper investigates the H controller design method for a class of singular networked control systems (SNCS) based on the singular plant. In view of the network-induced delay less than or equal to a sampling period, finite external disturbance, clock-driven sensors, event-driven controller and actuators as well as impulse behavior and structural instability of singular plants, the H controller design method of SNCS with state feed- back way and dynamic output feedback way is investigated respectively by means of the linear matrix inequality method. The existence condition of H control law, the solving approaches of H controller parameters and disturbance attenuation degree are presented. Finally, a simulation example is given to illustrate the effectiveness and feasibility of the presented method.
