Minimum packet drop sequences based networked control system model with embedded Markov chain

Wen, Peng and Li, Yan (2009) Minimum packet drop sequences based networked control system model with embedded Markov chain. Simulation Modelling Practice and Theory, 17 (10). pp. 1635-1641. ISSN 1569-190X


This paper proposes a novel method to study the modelling problem of a networked control system. We first identify the minimum packet drop sequences for a given plant or controller using the dynamics of the plant or controller. Then we represent these minimum packet drop sequences as states of a Markov chain. The state transition of the Markov chain is triggered at each packet transmission. Finally, this new modelling technique is demonstrated using the most commonly employed PID controller.
