  4. We propose a new distributed learning-based framework for stability assessment of a class of networked nonlinear systems, where each subsystem is dissipative. The aim is to learn, in a distributed manner, a Lyapunov function and associated region of attraction for the networked system. We begin by using a neural network function approximation to learn a storage function for each subsystem such that the subsystem satisfies a local dissipativity property. We next use a satisfiability modulo theories (SMT) solver based falsifier that verifies the local dissipativity of each subsystem by deter- mining an absence of counterexamples that violate the local dissipativity property, as established by the neural network approximation. Finally, we verify network-level stability by using an alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM) approach to update the storage function of each subsystem in a distributed manner until a global stability condition for the network of dissipative subsystems is satisfied. This step also leads to a network-level Lyapunov function that we then use to estimate a region of attraction. We illustrate the proposed algorithm and its advantages on a microgrid interconnection with power electronics interfaces.
