Event-triggered average consensus for multiagent systems with time-varying delay.

*(English)*Zbl 1407.93040Summary: The paper investigates average consensus for multiagent systems with time-varying delay. A reducing dimension multiagent systems model is presented firstly. Using event-triggered mechanism to reduce network load, a comprehensive model is then proposed, which considers communication delay and triggered issue. Furthermore, the event-triggered average consensus stability of multiagent systems with fixed directed/undirected graph is analyzed, and sufficient conditions are provided. Moreover, the upper bound of time-varying delay can be obtained conveniently. Finally, simulation results confirm the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed method.
