Abstract

In the past three decades, the problem of decentralized control has been thoroughly investigated in the literature, and a variety of its aspects are studied [1, 2, 3]. More recently, the problem of decentralized overlapping control has attracted several researchers [4, 5].The decentralized overlapping control is fundamentally used in two cases:
  1. i)

    when the subsystems of a system (referred to as overlapping subsystems) share some states [6, 7, 8]. In this case, it is usually desired that the structure of the controller matches the overlapping structure of the system [8];

     
  2. ii)

    when there are some limitations on the availability of the states. In this case, only certain outputs of the system are available for constructing each control signal.
