Talk Title: Distributed Synthesis for Local Controllers in Networked Systems
Series: Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things
Abstract: In traditional decentralized and distributed control, the subsystem level controllers are constrained to use states from a subset of neighboring subsystems to determine their control actions; however, the process of designing the controllers is centralized and utilizes the knowledge of the dynamics of all subsystems. For large scale systems involving plug and play operations, a distributed synthesis process in which the control synthesis is carried out locally at the subsystem level, without explicit knowledge of the dynamics of other subsystems in the network, may be required. We provide such a control design. We begin with a model based design and then extend it to consider the case when accurate models may not be available and a data-driven design is preferable.
Biography: Vijay Gupta is a Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, having joined the faculty in January 2008. He received his B. Tech degree at Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, and his M.S. and Ph.D. at California Institute of Technology, all in Electrical Engineering. Prior to joining Notre Dame, he also served as a research associate in the Institute for Systems Research at the University of Maryland, College Park. He received the 2018 Antonio Ruberti Award from IEEE Control Systems Society, the 2013 Donald P. Eckman Award from the American Automatic Control Council and a 2009 National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award. His research and teaching interests are broadly in distributed decision making.
