An Event-Triggered Approach to State Estimation for a Class of Complex Networks With Mixed Time Delays and Nonlinearities. Academic Article uri icon


  • In this paper, the state estimation problem is investigated for a class of discrete-time complex networks subject to nonlinearities, mixed delays, and stochastic noises. A set of event-based state estimators is constructed so as to reduce unnecessary data transmissions in the communication channel. Compared with the traditional state estimator whose measurement signal is received under a periodic clock-driven rule, the event-based estimator only updates the measurement information from the sensors when the prespecified "event" is violated. Attention is focused on the analysis and design problem of the event-based estimators for the addressed discrete-time complex networks such that the estimation error is exponentially bounded in mean square. A combination of the stochastic analysis approach and Lyapunov theory is employed to obtain sufficient conditions for ensuring the existence of the desired estimators and the upper bound of the estimation error is also derived. By using the convex optimization technique, the gain parameters of the desired estimators are provided in an explicit form. Finally, a simulation example is used to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed estimation strategy.
