Abstract

In this paper an analysis of a distributed control system based on Java is presented. A classical PID controlled system is implemented simulating each part of a real control system running in different computers connected to a local area network. The communication message time periods and their jitter are measured running the system in different computer environments and the results are presented and discussed at the end. Real time specification for Java is used in the implemented software and the results are compared to other implementations.
