Decentralized Implementation of Centralized Controllers for Interconnected Systems
Many real-world systems such as communication networks, large-space structures, power systems, and chemical processes can be modeled as interconnected systems with homogeneous or heterogeneous interacting subsystems [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]. The classical control techniques often fail to control such systems, in light of some well-known computation or communication constraints. This has given rise to the emergence of the decentralized control area that aims to design non-classical structurally constrained controllers . A decentralized controller comprises a set of non-interacting local controllers corresponding to disparate subsystems. The analysis and synthesis of a decentralized control system has long been studied by many researchers. In particular, the decentralized control theory has been recently developed for systems with geographically distributed subsystems in the context of distributed control for diverse applications, such as flight formation , consensus [8, 9] and Internet congestion control .
