Event-Driven Approach to Modeling and Performance Estimation of a Distributed Control System
Currently Distributed Control Systems are commonly used in the industry. Proper operation of such systems depends on reliable and efficient communication. Simulation of the system operation in different conditions, performed during early development stages, allows to estimate performance and predict behavior of final implementation. In this paper new event-driven model of a DCS has been introduced and compared with the previous one. Structure of the model decreased simulation time and improved scalability of the approach, whereas precision of the results was not diminished.
