报告摘要(Abstract): In this network-connected world, many tasks require coordination and cooperation of subsystems/agents via network connection. Multi-agent systems are good examples of interplay between network communication and control applications. Distributed algorithms have been developed based multi-agent systems for distributed optimization which aims at making decisions in local level, and achieving certain global optimization task through network communications. Control design and analysis play important part in the development of distributed optimization algorithms. This talk will cover some control perspectives such as consensus control and stability analysis for those common algorithms. Typical applications of consensus based distributed algorithms will also be presented in the area of power systems and smart grid.
报告人简介(Biography): Dr. Zhengtao Ding graduated with BEng from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. He then studied control engineering in the Control Systems Centre, UMIST, with MSc in systems and control and PhD in control systems. Having worked in Singapore for ten years, he joined University of Manchester in 2003. He is now a professor in control engineering. His research interests are mainly focused on nonlinear and adaptive control theory and their applications. He has supervised several PhD students and a number of MSc/MPhil students.
