Finite-time consensus of linear multi-agent system via distributed event-triggered strategy Academic Article uri icon


  • © 2018 The Franklin Institute In this paper, we mainly investigate the finite-time consensus problem of general linear multi-agent systems. The paper proposed a suitable event-triggered control strategy. The strategy has some desirable properties including: distributed, independent, and asynchronous. It is theoretical demonstrated that the multi-agent system can achieve consensus in a certain time regardless of the initial condition under this event-triggered control scheme. In addition, without finding singular triggering problem, we prove the feasibility of this proposed event-triggered control protocol. Finally, we put forward some simulation graphs for the sake of showing the availability of our conclusions.
