CERVANTES-HERRERA, Alejandro; RUIZ-LEON, Javier; LOPEZ-LIMON, Carlos  and  RAMIREZ-TREVINO, Antonio. Output Regulation and Consensus of a Class of Multi-agent Systems under Switching Communication Topologies. Comp. y Sist. [online]. 2015, vol.19, n.4, pp.757-767. ISSN 1405-5546.

This paper presents the design of a distributed control iaw for the output regulation and output consensus of a set of Ν agents. In this approach, each agent dynamics is represented by a switched linear system. The representation of the agents is neither constrained to be the same nor to have the same state dimension, and communication among agents is considered to be switching. It is also considered that some agents get the reference to be followed from the output of a virtual agent, and every agent gets the output information of its neighbors. Using this information, every agent computes the exosystem state to solve its individual regulation problem. The approach herein proposed employs a local switched stabilizing feedback for each agent based on a common Lyapunov function. A numerical example is provided in order to illustrate the proposed control law.
