Distributed Control: Theory and Applications

Over the last few years we have focused on the development of distributed controller synthesis techniques for large scale systems with constraints. There is a wealth of practical problems of this type. However at present systematic distributed control design for such systems is still at its infancy. Our goal is to provide tools which automatically generate distributed controllers guaranteed to satisfy the stability of the overall system and the designers' specifications. In this seminar I will first summarize our theoretical efforts, starting from constrained optimal control design for single systems.Then I will show how these results can be used in order to develop a novel theory for distributed constrained optimal control for large scale systems. During the talk several applications will be used in order to illustrate the benefits of the proposed approach.
