This paper investigates bandwidth allocation and scheduling of networked control systems (NCSs) with nonlinear-programming techniques. The bandwidth utilization (BU) is defined in terms of sampling frequency. An exponential and a quadratic approximation are formulated to describe system performance versus the sampling frequencies. The optimal sampling frequencies are obtained by solving the approximations with Karush-Kuhn-Tucker (KKT) conditions. Experimental results verify the effectiveness of the proposed approximations and scheduling algorithms. The two approximations could find an optimal BU of an NCS with a given sequence of plants and maximize the total BU up to 98% of the total available bandwidth. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.
