Title:  Data-driven control of networked systems

Abstract: With the development of information technologies, control systems are becoming more intelligent and interconnected. Accurate modeling of a control system has become increasingly difficult. For systems that are difficult to accurately model, traditional model-based control theories and methods are difficult to achieve ideal control performance. Data-driven control refers to the control method of designing controllers based solely on the offline/online data when the mathematical model and parameters of the control system are unknown. Data-driven control methods are independence of precise models and have broad applications. This talk will introduce the recent progress of data-driven control methods for networked systems, including data-driven event-triggered control and self-triggered control, data-driven resilient control under DoS attacks, data-driven self-triggered control based on trajectory prediction, data-driven robust LQG control, and data-driven output regulation of networked systems.
