A model-based event-triggered control scheme for nonlinear constrained continuous-time uncertain systems in networked configuration is presented in this paper. It is based on the combined use of model-predictive control (MPC) and integral sliding-mode (ISM) control, and it is oriented to reduce the packet transmission over the network both in the direct path and in the feedback path, in order to avoid network congestion. The key elements of the proposed control scheme are the ISM local control law, the MPC remote controller, a smart sensor, and a smart actuator, both containing a copy of the nominal model of the plant. The role of the ISM control law is to compensate matched uncertainties, without amplifying the unmatched ones. The MPC controller with tightened constraints generates the control component oriented to comply with state and control requirements and is asynchronous since the underlying constrained optimization problem is solved only when a triggering event occurs. In the paper, the robustness properties of the controlled system are theoretically analyzed, proving the regional input-to-state practical stability of the overall control scheme.

Abstract

A model-based event-triggered control scheme for nonlinear constrained continuous-time uncertain systems in networked configuration is presented in this paper. It is based on the combined use of model-predictive control (MPC) and integral sliding-mode (ISM) control, and it is oriented to reduce the packet transmission over the network both in the direct path and in the feedback path, in order to avoid network congestion. The key elements of the proposed control scheme are the ISM local control law, the MPC remote controller, a smart sensor, and a smart actuator, both containing a copy of the nominal model of the plant. The role of the ISM control law is to compensate matched uncertainties, without amplifying the unmatched ones. The MPC controller with tightened constraints generates the control component oriented to comply with state and control requirements and is asynchronous since the underlying constrained optimization problem is solved only when a triggering event occurs. In the paper, the robustness properties of the controlled system are theoretically analyzed, proving the regional input-to-state practical stability of the overall control scheme.
