Stability degradation due to delays in a networked control systems 2008-36-0286
In this work, still under development, we study the stability degradation due to delays in a networked control system. Our networked system is composed by: 1) a computer with Rate Monotonic Scheduler policy and, 2) a communication network based on TDMA access. Under this scenario, we analyze an integrated communication-computing delay and define the worst delay. The simulations shows that the presence of a worst delay can be determined only with an extensive analysis. The simulations were done in Matlab/Simulink with the help of Truetime toolbox.
