Abstract : This paper investigates the H∞ containment control problem of multi-agent systems with random communication time-delay. The information exchanges between the agents are supposed to be randomly delayed, characterized by a Bernoulli distribution sequence. And a neighbor-based protocol with random communication delay is proposed. As external perturbation exits broadly in many practical systems, the paper deals with it by using H∞ control theory. By applying stochastic technique, Lyapunov analysis and the free-weighting matrices technique, theoretical results show that the followers will ultimately converge to the convex hull spanned by the leaders in the mean square sense with a prescribed H∞ performance index. Finally, a numerical example is given to demonstrate the validity of the theoretical results.
