Abstract

The H2 performance of a class of noisy time-delay consensus networks with directed

interconnection topologies is considered. For networks with normal Laplacian, we

derive a closed-form expression for the performance measure and study its functional

properties. The scaling properties of the H2-norm is investigated for some families

of networks. Finally, the problem of tuning feedback gains of a network with fixed

topology in order to improve its performance is considered. Our proposed design

method can handle networks with several thousands state variables.
