Guaranteed consensus performance in second-order networked multi-agent systems with induced delay
This work described the performance of consensus control of the second-order networked multi-agent system with CAN bus-induced delay. First, the characteristics of controller area networks (CAN) buses and the main causes of CAN bus induce a delay in distributed networked control systems (DNCS) were analysed. Secondly, DNCS is converted into a model of networked multi-agent systems in the frequency domain. Then based on the designed model of networked multi-agent systems, an analytical H2 controller is proposed for performance tracking. Moreover, a complementary sensitivity function is used to assess the robustness of the proposed controller. In the end, delay margin criteria are derived for the consensus of a networked multi-agent system in the presence of CAN bus-induced delay. The results obtained by simulating the second-order networked multi-agent system verified the usefulness of the proposed control protocol.
