Distributed average tracking for multiple reference signals with general linear dynamics

Yu Zhao, Zhisheng Duan, Zhongkui Li

This technical note studies the distributed average tracking problem for multiple time-varying signals with general linear dynamics, whose reference inputs are nonzero and not available to any agent in the network. In distributed fashion, a pair of continuous algorithms with, respectively, static and adaptive coupling strengths are designed. Based on the boundary layer concept, the proposed continuous algorithm with static coupling strengths can asymptotically track the average of the multiple reference signals without chattering phenomenon. Furthermore, for the case of algorithms with adaptive coupling strengths, the average tracking errors are uniformly ultimately bounded and exponentially converge to a small adjustable bounded set. Finally, a simulation example is presented to show the validity of the theoretical results.
