Abstract : This paper studies the problem of H∞ model reference tracking control for continuous time networked control systems (NCSs) with communication constraints. By using the continuous Jensen inequality, linear matrix inequality (LMI)-based H∞ model reference tracking controller design for nominal NCSs with controller-to-actuator communication constraints is presented, and a new method is proposed to design H∞ model reference tracking controllers for NCSs with both controller-to-actuator and sensor-to- controller communication constraints. The results are also extended to NCSs with norm-bounded parameter uncertainties. The merits of the proposed methods lie in their less computational complexity and less conservatism, which are achieved by adopting continuous Jensen inequality and proposing new controller design methods, respectively. The simulation results illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed H∞ model reference tracking controller design for NCSs with communication constraints.
