We consider supervisory control of nonlinear systems which are implemented on digital networks. In particular, two candidate controllers are orchestrated by a supervisor to stabilize the origin of the plant by following a dwell time logic, i.e. evaluating a control-mode switching rule at instants which are at least spaced by some dwell time interval. The plant, the controllers and the supervisor communicate via a network and the transmissions are triggered by a mechanism at the discrete sampling instants, which leads to periodic event-triggered control. Thus, there are possibly two kinds of events generated at the sampling instants: the control-mode switching event to activate another control law and the transmission event to update the control input. We propose a systematic design procedure for periodic event-triggered supervisory control for nonlinear systems. We start from a supervisory control scheme which robustly stabilizes the system in the absence of the network. We then implement it over the network and design event-triggering rules to preserve its stability properties. In particular, for each candidate controller, we provide a lower bound for the control-mode dwell time, design criterion to generate transmission events and present an explicit bound on the maximum sampling period with which the triggering rules are evaluated, to ensure stability of the whole system. We show that there exist relationships among the control-mode dwell time, a parameter used to define the transmission event-triggering condition and the bound of the sampling period. An example is given to illustrate the results.
