Stabilization of networked control systems with quantizations and packet losses
Although there has been a lot of work about the synthesis and analysis of networked control systems (NCSs) with quantizers as well as NCSs with packet losses, most results are developed for the case of considering the quantizers and packet losses separately (either only concentrating on the data quantization or only focussing on the packet losses). In this paper, we address the synthesis approach of model predictive control (MPC) for NCSs subject to both data quantization and packet losses. This is motivated by the fact that it is common and natural in NCSs that the issues of the quantization and packet losses are coexisting. We firstly propose a novel model to describe the state and input quantization and the packet losses of the NCS in a unified framework. Further, from the new model, a MPC strategy is developed, which can guarantee the recursive feasibility. Finally, a numerical example is given to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
