Simulation of a Distributed Real-Time System

Anders Möller, CC-systems.
seminar at 15.10

CC Systems AB is a company developing control systems for many different applications. An important issue when developing new systems or improving existing ones is the ability to simulate the complete control system in a PC. CC Systems AB has developed a simulation package which can be used to simulate CAN based distributed real time control systems in a Windows environment.
This report describes how simulation can be done in Windows using simulated peripheral devices, such as CAN controllers and memories. Two different approaches for how the simulation can be realized are discussed. One for an existing control system designed by Rolls-Royce AB used for ship propulsion, and one to simulate real time operating systems using an API-level simulation technique.
An improvement of the simulation package, using a simulated time control, is also considered and realized in this thesis. This time control can be used to control the execution speed in a distributed real time control system.
The goal with this Master thesis is to describe the benefits simulating a control system in a PC and to improve the simulation package used by CC System AB, so that it uses a simulated time control.

This seminar is part of the The ASTEC Cluster on Distributed Embedded Real-Time Systems (CODER) An afternoon seminarseries. March 12th, starting at 13.15.
