    Averaging for nonlinear systems on Riemannian manifolds
    Taringoo, F ; Nesic, D ; Tan, Y ; Dower, PM (IEEE, 2013)
    This paper provides a derivation of the averaging methods for nonlinear time-varying dynamical systems defined on Riemannian manifolds. We extend the results on ℝ n to Riemannian manifolds by employing the language of differential geometry.

    Extremum seeking control for nonlinear systems on compact Riemannian manifolds
    Taringoo, F ; Nesic, D ; Tan, Y ; DOWER, PM (IEEE Press, 2014)
    This paper formulates the extremum seeking control problem for nonlinear dynamical systems which evolve on Riemannian manifolds and presents stability results for a class of numerical algorithms defined in this context. The results are obtained based upon an extension of extremum seeking algorithms in Euclidean spaces and a generalization of Lyapunov stability theory for dynamical systems defined on Rimannian manifolds. We employ local properties of Lyapunov functions to extend the singular perturbation analysis on Riemannian manifolds. Consequently, the results of the singular perturbation on manifolds are used to obtain the convergence of extremum seeking algorithms for dynamical systems on Riemannian manifolds.

    Coordination of blind agents on Lie groups
    Taringoo, F ; Nesic, D ; DOWER, P ; Tan, Y (IEEE, 2015)
    This paper presents an algorithm for the synchronization of blind agents evolving on a connected Lie group. We employ the method of extremum seeking control for nonlinear dynamical systems defined on connected Riemannian manifolds to achieve the synchronization among the agents. This approach is independent of the underlying graph of the system and each agent updates its position on the connected Lie group by only receiving the synchronization cost function.

    Closeness of solutions and averaging for nonlinear systems on Riemannian manifolds
    Taringoo, F ; Nesic, D ; Tan, Y ; Dower, PM (IEEE, 2013)
    An averaging result for periodic dynamical systems evolving on Euclidean spaces is extended to those evolving on (differentiable) Riemannian manifolds. Using standard tools from differential geometry, a perturbation result for time-varying dynamical systems is developed that measures closeness of trajectories via a suitable metric on a finite time horizon. This perturbation result is then extended to bound excursions in the trajectories of periodic dynamical systems from those of their respective averages, on an infinite time horizon, yielding the specified averaging result. Some simple examples further illustrating this result are also presented.

    A hybrid model of networked control systems implemented on WirelessHART networks under source routing configuration
    Maass, AI ; Nesic, D ; Dower, PM (IEEE, 2016-01-01)
    A Network control system (NCS) is a control system in which communication between subsystems takes place over a digital network. Numerous results exist in the literature on modelling, analysis and design of NCSs in the presence of specific communication constraints such as packet dropouts, delays, data rates, quantization, etc. However, when analysing NCSs implemented on real physical networks, the existing results are based on restrictive assumptions. We consider NCSs over WirelessHART, the first international standard for industrial process control. With the goal of closing the gap between theory and practice, we propose for the first time a hybrid control-oriented model of WirelessHART NCSs under source routing configuration. Moreover, asymptotic and exponential stability results are presented under reasonable conditions.

    Observer design for networked control systems implemented over WirelessHART
    Maass, AI ; Nesic, D ; Postoyan, R ; Dower, PM (IEEE, 2018)
    We study the design of state observers for nonlinear networked control systems (NCSs) that are implemented over WirelessHART (WH). WH is a wireless communication protocol for process automation applications. It is characterised by its multi-hop structure, slotted communication cycles, and simultaneous transmission over different frequencies. We present a solution based on the emulation approach. That is, given an observer designed with a specific stability property in the absence of communication constraints, we implement it over a WH network and we provide sufficient conditions on the latter, to preserve the stability property of the observer. In particular, we provide explicit bounds on the maximum allowable transmission interval. We assume that the plant dynamics and measurements are affected by noise and we guarantee an inputto- state stability property for the corresponding estimation error system.

    Emulation-based stabilisation of networked control systems over WirelessHART
    Maass, AI ; Nesic, D ; Postoyan, R ; Dower, PM ; S Varma, V (IEEE Press, 2017)
    We study the emulation-based stabilisation of nonlinear networked control systems (NCSs) implemented over WirelessHART (WH). WH is a communication protocol widely used in process instrumentation. It is characterised by its multi-hop structure, slotted communication cycles, and simultaneous transmission over different frequencies. To capture most functionalities of WH, faithful models are needed. We propose a hybrid control-oriented model of WH-NCSs that includes the key features of the network. We then follow an emulation approach to stabilise the NCS. We show that, under reasonable assumptions on the scheduling protocol, stability is preserved when the controller is implemented over the network with sufficiently frequent data transmission. We then explain how to schedule transmissions over the hops to satisfy those assumptions.
