Frequency conditions for stable networked controllers with time-delay
The paper analyses a networked control system consisting of a linear time-invariant system with a static feedback nonlinearity, subject to large delays in the feedback loop. This model is valid for example in wireless data flow control, where a saturation occurs since the flow is one-directional. The present paper extends previous results by proving necessity, in case the loop gain is uniformly less than one. The results are validated and illustrated in a simulation study.
