Abstract

This paper is concerned with the study of scalability in nonlinear heterogeneous networks affected by communication delays and disturbances. After formalizing the notion of scalability, we give two sufficient conditions to assess this property. Our results can be used to study leader-follower and leaderless networks and also allow to consider the case when the desired configuration of the system changes over time. We show how our conditions can be turned into design guidelines to guarantee scalability and illustrate their effectiveness via numerical examples.
