Master-Slave Synchronization of Heterogeneous Systems Under Scheduling Communication Academic Article uri icon


  • 2016 IEEE. Under the mild assumption that only the sampled-data output information about the master system is available, synchronization of networked master-salve system consisting of a high-order master system and a low-order slave system is investigated in this paper. Specifically, the dynamics of the master system and those of the slave system are allowed to be characterized by heterogeneous nonlinear systems. The communication between these two systems are transmitted by multiple sensors over a communication network, while at each sampling instant, only one sensor is allowed to transmit its current information to the controller's side according to some carefully designed scheduling protocols. To achieve master-salve synchronization, the stochastic scheduling and the Round-Robin scheduling protocols are, respectively, proposed and utilized. By appropriately designing observer and controller for the slave system, some sufficient synchronization criteria regarding to the gain matrices, sampling intervals and communication delays are derived for the closed-loop master-salve system under respectively the stochastic scheduling and the Round-Robin scheduling protocols. Last, two numerical examples are simulated to validate the effectiveness of the theoretical results.
