(Elsevier Ltd, 2019-05-17)The problem of placing or selecting sensors and control nodes plays a pivotal role in the operation of dynamic networks. This paper proposes optimal algorithms and heuristics to solve the Simultaneous Sensor and Actuator ...
Many important complex networks, including critical infrastructure and emerging industrial automation systems, are becoming increasingly intricate webs of interacting feedback control loops. A fundamental concern is to ...
In most dynamic networks, it is impractical to measure all of the system states; instead, only a subset of the states are measured through sensors. Consequently, and unlike full state feedback controllers, output feedback ...
We propose a data-driven method to solve a stochastic optimal power flow (OPF) problem based on limited information about forecast error distributions. The objective is to determine power schedules for controllable devices ...
We develop computationally tractable methods for concurrent goal assignment and planning of collision-free trajectories for multiple aerial robot systems. Our method first assigns robots to goals to minimize total ...
