Formalized Design Procedure for Networked Control Systems
In this paper, we proposed a formalized design procedure for networked control systems (NCSs). In a conventional development of NCSs, well-designed control algorithms do not result in the intended control performance after an implementation due to time delays, such as network-induced delays and controller computation delays. The proposed design procedure shows how to minimize the degradation of the control performance caused by the time delays. The design procedure was verified by designing a network-based traction control system (TCS). The designed TCS was realized and tested by using a rapid control prototyping (RCP) platform and a hardware-in-the-loop simulation (HILS) environment.
