Observer-Based Adaptive Synchronization of Multiagent Systems With Unknown Parameters Under Attacks. Academic Article uri icon


  • This article studies the observer-based adaptive synchronization of multiagent systems (MASs) with unknown parameters under attacks. First, to estimate the state of agents, the observer for MAS is introduced. When disturbance, nonlinear function, and system model uncertainty are not considered, the nominal controller is proposed to achieve synchronization and state estimation. Then, in order to eliminate the effect of unknown parameters in the disturbance, nonlinear function, and system model uncertainty, the adaptive controller with switching term is introduced. However, the attack will lead to the destruction of the network topology so as the destruction of the nominal controller. By constructing an appropriate Lyapunov function, we analyze the effect caused by attacks, and the security control law is given to make sure the synchronization of the MASs under attacks. Finally, a numerical simulation is given to verify the validness of the obtained theorem.
