Abstract

This paper provides a general framework for analyzing the stability of general nonlinear networked control systems (NCS) with disturbances in the setting of cal Lp stability. Our presentation provides sharper results for both Lp gain and maximum allowable transfer interval (MATI) than previously obtainable and details the property of uniformly persistently exciting scheduling protocols. This class of protocols was shown to lead to cal Lp stability for high enough transmission rates and were a natural property to demand, especially in the design of wireless scheduling protocols. The property is used directly in a novel proof technique based on the notions of vector comparison and (quasi)-mono..
