Supervisor Localization: A Top-Down Approach to Distributed Control of Discrete-Event Systems (1st Edition)

This monograph presents a systematic top-down approach to distributed control synthesis of discrete-event systems (DES). The approach is called supervisor localization; its essence is the allocation of external supervisory control action to individual component agents as their internal control strategies. The procedure is: first...
