Abstract : "We introduce a novel coalitional control scheme based on the PageRank, which is a measure of the relevance of the nodes in a graph. In particular, local controllers are allowed to create aid request/offer links to each other. The PageRank of the aid network is then used as a means to group the agents dynamically in clusters in real time. Model predictive control is used inside each cluster to calculate the control actions taking into account the objectives of the corresponding controllers. The proposed algorithm can be implemented in a fully distributed fashion. Via a simulation example, we demonstrate that the proposed algorithm can outperform other coalitional control schemes."
