Peer-to-Peer Communication Control for Resilient Operations of Networked Cyber-Physical Systems
Develop a distributed control framework for self-assembling and self-reconfiguring CPS networks by exploiting peer-to-peer communication among the controllers.
PI: Long Vu, email@example.com
This project will develop a distributed control framework for self-assembling and self-reconfiguring of cyber-physical system (CPS) networks by exploiting the peer-to-peer communication among the controllers. The effort will build upon the team’s prior work and develop a new adaptive and responsive network control capability that co-optimizes both the electrical network (e.g., flexible interconnection links) and the cyber network (communication) to enable networked CPS to adapt to adverse conditions and recover normal operations.
- Goal I: Develop a generalized self-assembling framework for CPS networks.
- Goal II: Adopt the framework for the networked microgrids use case and demonstrate the control performance on a co-simulation platform overlayed with a communication layer.
The self-assembling controller will be based on a multi-leader follower consensus framework, where the leaders will be intelligently selected and randomized to enhance cyber resilience of the control architecture. The algorithm will combine local data and learned global information through peer to-peer communication for decision-making and assure the stability of the overall system after recovery from adversarial conditions or events.
