Abstract

This paper is concerned with cluster consensus of linear multi-agent systems via a distributed event-triggered control scheme. Assume that agents can be split into several clusters and a leader is associated with each cluster. Sufficient conditions are derived to guarantee the realization of cluster consensus by a feasible event-triggered controller if the network topology of each cluster has a directed spanning tree and the couplings within each cluster are sufficiently strong. Further, positive inner-event time intervals are ensured for the proposed event-triggered strategy to avoid Zeno behaviors. Finally, a numerical example is given to illustrate the effectiveness of the theoretical results.
