In the operation of networked control systems, signal quantization is a fundamental problem. Because a network can be shared, another important problem that affects the system performance is the network’s traffic congestion. The event-triggered quantizer is developed to reduce the effects of such problems. Its design problem is formulated, and it is solved using the differential evolution (DE) metaheuristic algorithm. The effectiveness of the event-triggered quantizer is verified through numerical examples.
