Scaling in distributed control

The Dean’s award for 2015 went to Jakub Konrad, from the Department of Control Engineering, for his bachelor thesis under the direction of Ivo Herman.  Jakub’s work examines the effects of random noise on different systems with distributed control compared with scaling in distributed control systems with optimal and suboptimal regulators.  It goes on to examine the impact of various structures of communication graphs, and static non-linear boundary conditions.
