A decentralization methodology for real-time control applications
1996 (English)In: Control Engineering Practice, ISSN 0967-0661, Vol. 4, no 2, 219-228 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Machine-embedded control applications constitute a recent area for distributed computer systems. The industrial potential is large, but research has so far not directly treated such systems, which are characterized by real-time multirate control systems and I/O bounds. An engineering methodology for evaluating different hardware structures, control-system structures and allocation approaches is outlined. It consists of the following steps: control system structuring; decentralization involving partitioning, allocation and evaluation; and execution strategy considerations. Feedback from the use of the methodology in two case studies has been incorporated into the methodology.
