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.
