—In this paper, we address the leader following consensus of BLDC motor by considering the effect of delay in the network. Since BLDC motors are used in a variety of application such as Automobiles, Servo drives, UAV’s, Aeronautics and other areas requiring higher efficiency and ease of control, therefore we think it is necessary to study the behavior of motor from the Multi-Agent point of view. We use RST pole placement control approach to design a system that controls the speed of BLDC motor and then elaborates the system from Multi-Agent prospective for consensus on speed by considering the effect of network delay. We assume that each agent communicates its data with neighbor via delay in a communication network. We use MATLAB Simulink to simulate the proposed model and results endorse the success of our approach.
