Abstract

Recently it has been shown that the AQM (Active Queue Management) schemes implemented in the routers of communication networks supporting TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) flows can be modeled as a feedback control system. Based on a delay differential equations model of TCP's congestion-avoidance mode different control schemes have been proposed. Here a robust controller is designed based on the known techniques for ℋ ∞ control of systems with time delays.
