In this chapter, an overview of the issues and structural properties of decentralized interconnected systems is presented with a focus on the control design constraints. These constraints constitute the backbone in the problem of performance synthesis and include consideration of delay-factors, information structures, interaction pattern, quantization and overflow, switching among multi-controllers. The primary objective is three-fold: to review past methods and results from a contemporary perspective, to examine presents trends and approaches and to provide future possibilities, focusing on robust, reliable and/or resilient decentralized design methods based on linear matrix inequalities framework.
