Decentralized control for large-scale nonlinear systems: A review of recent results

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


In this paper, we review some of the recent results in decentralized control for large-scale nonlinear systems. Problems of decentralized stabilization, adaptive tracking, disturbance attenuation with internal stability are examined, with a special emphasis on output feedback control. Open challenges are discussed throughout the paper.
