Abstract [en]

The first main part of this thesis presents a novel distributed event-based control strategy

for the synchronization of a network consisting of


identical dynamical linear systems. The

problem statement can be interpreted as a generalization of a classical event-based consensus

problem. Each system updates its control signals according to some triggering conditions

based on local information only. Starting with the event-based synchronization with state

feedback two different approaches are derived. The trigger functions of the first approach

depend on the transfered system states, while the trigger conditions of the second approach

depend on the control inputs. The advantages (or otherwise) of both approaches and implementations

are discussed. Furthermore, we extend the problem setup to the synchronization

with a dynamic output feedback coupling and transfer the both event-based methods to this

problem. The novel proposed approaches yields to the general results for the event-based

synchronization for linear systems. In the second smaller part we present a new method

for the distributed event-based synchronization of Kuramoto oscillators. We assume a uniform

Kuramoto model of


all-to-all connected oscillators with different natural frequencies.

Throughout the report, simulation results validate and illustrate the proposed theoretical
