A Worst Case Formula for a Communication and Computation Delay in NCS. 2010-36-0358

A major trend in modern aerospace and automotive systems is to integrate computing, communication and control into different levels of the vehicle and/or its supervision. A well-fitted architecture adopted by this trend is the common bus network architecture. A Networked Control System (NCS) is called when the control loop is closed through a communication network. The presence of this communication network introduces new characteristics that must be considered at the design time of a control system. This work, still in development, focuses on a worst case formula for a communication (TDMA) plus computation (RMS) on a NCS. This formula, in a first instance, agrees with the simulated cases under the hypotheses and conditions when the NCS is composed by 1 actuator - 1 sensor and when is composed by 2 actuators - 2 sensors. In the future, we intend to generalize this formula and extend this study to NCS that uses other communication protocols or others computer schedulers.
