OutputFeedback Synchronizability of Linear TimeInvariant Systems
Abstract
The paper studies the outputfeedback synchronization problem for a network of identical, linear timeinvariant systems. A criterion to test network synchronization is derived and the class of outputfeedback synchronizable systems is introduced and characterized by sufficient and necessary conditions. In particular it is observed that outputfeedback stabilizability is sufficient but not necessary for outputfeedback synchronizability. In the special case of singleinput singleoutput systems, conditions are derived in the frequency domain. The theory is illustrated with several examples.
