Abstract

Integrated Communication and Control Systems (ICCS), recently introduced and analyzed in a series of papers, are applicable to complex dynamical processes like advanced aircraft, spacecraft, automotive, and manufacturing processes. Time-division-multiplexed computer networks are employed in ICCS for exchange of information between spatially distributed plant components as well as for coordination of the diverse control and decision-making functions. Unfortunately, an ICCS network introduces randomly varying, distributed delays within the feedback loops in addition to the digital sampling and data processing delays. These network-induced delays degrade the system dynamic performance, and are a source of potential instability. This two-part paper presents the synthesis and performance evaluation of a stochastic optimal control law for ICCS. In this paper, which is the first of two parts, a state feedback control law for ICCS has been formulated by using the dynamic programming and optimality principle on a finite-time horizon.
