• Controllability of Prosumer-Based Networks in the Presence of Communication Failures 

      Ramachandran, Thiagarajan; Nazari, Masoud; Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2015-12)
      Typically, interconnected dynamical systems rely on communication in order to coordinate and compute appropriate control actions. Loss of communication links can exclude key decision makers from providing input and ...
    • Distributed Power Allocation in Prosumer Networks 

      Ramachandran, Thiagarajan; Costello, Zak; Kingston, Peter; Grijalva, Santiago; Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyElsevier, 2012-09)
      Due to requirements of renewable and distributed energy integration,sustainability and energy security, the existing power grid is undergoing radical changes.The lines between producers and consumers are becoming blurred. ...
    • Overcoming Communication Delays in Distributed Frequency Regulation 

      Ramachandran, Thiagarajan; Nazari, Masoud H.; Grijalva, Santiago; Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2016-07)
      This paper proposes a general framework for determining the effect of communication delays on the convergence of certain distributed frequency regulation (DFR) protocols for prosumer-based energy systems, where prosumers ...
    • Pair-Wise Agreement Using Set-Valued Sensors 

      Ramachandran, Thiagarajan; Egerstedt, Magnus B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC), 2013-09)
      In this paper, we study the effect that set-valued sensors have on coordination algorithms. In particular, we investigate the two-agent rendezvous problem with severely limited sensing. We characterize conditions under ...
