Input Time Delay Margin in Event-Triggered Consensus of Multiagent Systems Academic Article uri icon


  • In this paper, the event-triggered consensus problem of multiagent systems with input time delay is investigated. First, the normal event-triggered control scheme containing the input time delay is introduced to reduce the number of communication. Then the following results are achieved: 1) the procedure of setting parameters is carefully formulated for the event-triggered control scheme; 2) the precise input time delay margin is calculated for the event-triggered consensus of the multiagent systems; 3) a more general condition of constructing event-triggered functions is derived to exclude the Zeno behavior; 4) the self-triggered control scheme is further applied to avoid the continuous measurement; and 5) the observer-based control scheme is also utilized to tackle the problem of unmeasurable state. Finally, the correctness and the effectiveness of these results are demonstrated by numerical simulations.
